About me

I am a divorce and family law attorney, and I help families obtain guardianship of their incapacitated loved ones. I work hard to help my client's obtain their goals and protect their children from the ill effects of divorce and confrontation.


 


Outside of work, I spend a lot of time with my son and my beautiful wife. I also love to read, cook, hike, travel, and weightlift.
