I have been practicing law since 1986. I started in juvenile law, representing abused and neglected children. I added probate law around the same time, which involved administering decedents' estates, working with adults who were the subjects of guardianship and/or conservatorship proceedings and protecting the interests of minors in connection with conservatorship cases. Whether representing petitioners concerned about the well-being of their loved ones or representing children or disabled adults, working to help bring about positive change and good results for those who are disabled, abused, neglected or unable to protect themselves is fulfilling.
Also, helping people who have lost family and/or loved ones sort through the probate process is something I enjoy doing. At the end of the day, it's really important to know that I've helped make someone's life a little better, a little less stressful, and a little more successful!
Traveling the world and making music is something I enjoy in my spare time. I am a singer-songwriter who loves gospel, bossa nova and world music in various languages. My original music won second place in the 2010 Arizona State Bar Creative Arts Competition for lawyers, which was the first and only time I entered the competition. Looking forward to making more music in 2014!
