About me

For over 25 years I have focused my practice in family law, with a particular emphasis on matters relating to the dissolution of marriage: divorce representation and mediation, child custody and child support. I am a native St. Louisan and a graduate of the Washington University School of Law, Class of '73.


I am a divorce lawyer who has been where you are now and I understand the pain, stress and uncertainty you are experiencing. Several years ago I went through a difficult and contentious divorce and child custody battle with my ex-husband, and I have traveled this same path with clients hundreds of times.


These experiences have led me to reshape my approach to the practice of divorce law, which I call The ConstructiveDivorce®. The intended result is that my clients are able to move onto the next stage of their lives feeling whole, with their financial and emotional resources intact, and their family relationships preserved.


So, whether you are just starting to think about the possibility of ending your marriage, have already decided to seek a divorce (or your spouse has made that decision), or you want to revisit issues from a prior divorce, such as child custody or child support, please don't hesitate to contact me, by telephone or email, to set up an appointment so that we can discuss your situation in person.
