Whether I’m working on a case with complex business issues and assets of $25,000,000, or a less complex case with assets of $2,000,000, the attention required is the same. As a Family Law attorney since 1987, I help people through the divorce process with the close attention, legal expertise and support they need. I encourage cooperation between spouses/partners whenever possible, keeping the ultimate goals of resolving the issues between them and helping them prepare for the next part of their life at the forefront. This may occur through litigation, where both spouses are represented by an attorney, and may or may not involve court hearings. Or, it may occur through mediation, where I represent neither party, but help both craft an agreement that works for both of them. My background as a Marriage and Family Therapist is helpful in all situations.
In addition to divorce work, I draft and negotiate premarital, post-marital and cohabitation agreements.
On a personal note, I currently have 2 dogs and a cat, and ride horseback. I've had a great interest in medieval Tuscan art, since attending school in Florence, Italy, as part of my senior year in college.
