About me

I work to help individuals avoid the courthouse in resolving their
family law disputes. Divorces and modification suits are hard enough
without burdening the couple with the gristmill of litigation. I firmly
believe that, equipped with the right team of collaborative
professionals to guide you, you and your spouse will be able to
negotiate an agreement that is more creative, more beneficial, and more
satisfying than anything a perfect stranger in a black robe could
