About me

I have been practicing exclusively in Family Law for most of my legal career.   My practice is currently a mixture of litigation, collaboration and mediation.  I believe strongly that divorcing families should do everything they can to minimize the emotional fallout from divorce, so that the experience doesn’t cripple them or their children.
