I enjoy helping people. It's that simple.

I enjoy working with people and helping them navigate the complex legal system. I have a long history of always fighting for the underdog. That same mentality has carried over to my legal career.
I provide representation in probate matters including the probate of a deceased's estate, will contests, and general litigation involving probate matters.
I also provide representation in a wide range of family law matters such as contested and uncontested divorces as well as actions for separate maintenance (separation). I am also trained in collaborative law. I handle modification, enforcement, or registrations of divorce decrees. I also provide representation in child custody, visitation, paternity, and child support matters.
I especially enjoy handling adoptions including stepparent adoption and non-familial adoptions. I also provide representation in guardianships for adults and children as well as contesting and terminating guardianships.
I also provide mediation services as well as handle administrative appeals and unlawful detainer actions.
I am a certified ad litem for children in domestic relations or probate matters.
When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my spouse and our animals. I also enjoy reading, working on our home, and spending time with friends.
