About me

I was a paralegal for  almost  ten years before I went to law school.


I have always had a passion for helping people through difficult situations.  I strive to utilize not only my legal experience but my personal experience with losing my mother and my father's dementia when I am dealing with clients.


My husband and I have recently started to travel.  We have visited the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, France and Ireland.
