About me

I started my firm in 1996 with the goal of working closely with clients to help them make good decisions during tough times in their lives. There are many emotions one experiences during the divorce and child custody process and my team and I strive to keep things calm while making sure you stay informed and up to date on what is happening in your case. We are accessible to answer questions or address unforeseen issues that might arise.
