About me


Sally's practice focuses on Family Law, primarily dealing with
divorce issues such as child custody, child support and maintenance. Her
undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Missouri –
St. Louis provided her with the additional tools and counseling skills
necessary to understand and deal with the unique emotional demands
inherent in a family law practice.


 


She emphasizes the importance
of settlement and works hard to assist her clients in reaching agreement
on all issues because she strongly believes this alleviates much of the
stress brought on by court appearances and trial. She further believes
that an amicable divorce is always preferable, especially when there are
children, and increases the chance of harmonious co-parenting in the
future. Her compassion and empathy helps to heal her clients who often
come to her in a highly emotional state. She resolves their cases as quickly as possible to reduce trauma to the family members. If
this is not possible, she can and will aggressively represent her
clients at trial.


 


Additionally, Sally handles Wills, Trusts and
Probate Administration in St. Louis County, City, and the surrounding
counties. She also works in traffic and criminal state and municipal
matters such as possession of marijuana, DWI, and traffic tickets.


 


Sally
gives back to the community through her mentoring of paralegal and law
students as well as high school students who are interested in pursuing a
legal career.
