About me

I am doing what I love to do in Family law.  My job is to help people.  While I want to make enough money to live on, I'm not in this to get rich.  I cannot imagine a job with more satisfaction that mine.  Helping people at what is often the worst times of their lives, to deal with the most important issues in their lives their children and property.  I want to help you.
