About me

I dearly love the practice of law because I get to face challenges and learn new things every day -- all of which have direct application to the lives of my clients and their families.  The practice of family law isn't easy because people are extremely emotional, but when I see my client overcome obstacles and begin a new phase of their life, I get a great deal of satisfaction.  Whenever I work with a client, my hope is to not only achieve the best possible result, but to teach them communication skills that can be used in other areas of their lives.  


When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and writing creative non-fiction.
