About me

In my family law practice, I try to provide my clients with an aggressive, thorough, and thoughtful approach to their case, staying ever-mindful of the “big picture.” No matter what or how complex a legal predicament is, I will always insure that my clients not only know what they need to do to be successful, but why their doing it.
