I practice in the area of Family Law where I have successfully represented families since 2005. I joined Udall Shumway PLC in 2005. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked as a Paralegal in the family law area for seven years until 2001. In 2002, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. My degree in psychology has served her well in understanding the emotional difficulties my client’s experience during their divorce and family law cases.
It is important in representing clients to to accomplish their goals as part of my representation of them and guide them in accordance with Arizona law.
I was raised in Tucson and moved to the East Valley in 1994. I have gone through my own divorce with children and thus have personal experience with the emotional aspects and practical issues surrounding it. I effectively and zealously advocates equally for both my male and female clients.
