I am very passionate about family law because I was a child of divorce and I am a father of two young children. I am sensitive to and fully appreciate the emotional costs that go along with any matter involving children.
I make it my personal mission to achieve the best solution possible for all of my clients, regardless of their economic status. To do so, I make myself available 24/7 and give every client my personal cell phone number. When you hire me, I will be directly involved and accessible to you 100% of the way from our first meeting until the matter concludes, whether that is through settlement or trial.
I consider it my duty to make sure that my clients fully understand the risks and benefits of every decision in a case and that all of their questions are answered. I have a background in accounting and finance which makes me uniquely qualified to handle complex financial issues while at the same time explaining them to my clients in a clear and straightforward manner.
If you are facing a family law issue, please feel free to give me a call at 424-253-1177
