About me

Family law is not just something I do to earn a living. I love what I do as a family law attorney and mediator. As an attorney I am able to help many clients protect their children and their assets. As a mediator I am able to help individuals and their attorneys resolve cases before the expense of a trial. 


I am a parent of a teenager and over the years have been able to help my clients because I understand deeply the importance of their children. I am also married to a Deputy Sherrif anod understand the world outside my office well. The legal community is a serve and protect community. Which both myself and my husband understand greatly.
