I am one of the few attorneys I know who set out to be a Family Law Attorney when I went to law school. I like assisting people in one of the most traumatic legal problems that they face, and enjoy the challenge of finding a resolution that works for them, and if there is not one, taking the case to trial.
I take a holistic view of my family law cases, and listen carefully to my clients needs and wants, and focus on what is reasonable. I am always willing to listen to my clients before I make any suggestions, and I usually give my clients more than one option depending on how the scenario plays out with the other partner.
The Boy Scout Motto is "Be Prepared.", and that is why I listen to my clients, so I can prepare a case around their needs, and work towards a resolution that meets those needs. Every client and case has its own distinct uniqueness, and each client is a person experiencing the no "Win" scenario of divorce. I recognize this and treat each client as a person, not just another number.
I am an avid movie fan. This helps me be quiet and observe, and soak in all of the details. I am a supporter of the arts, and an active member of the Phoenix Art Museum. I enjoy bicycling and hiking. I do both at my own pace. I also enjoy Yoga to refresh my body, mind and spirit.
