About me

I specialize in all aspects of family law.  My mission is to provide high-quality, affordable legal counsel and advocacy to clients during what is often an unfamiliar, difficult, and emotional time in their lives.  Through counsel and advocacy, I strive to make an unfamiliar process familiar so that clients navigate the legal system successfully and can start the next chapter of their lives.
