"An amateur uses time to save resources.  A professional uses resources to save time."  There are many situations were being represented by a competent attorney is absolutely necessary. A divorce particularly when it involves child custody issues, is fraught with issues that are not obvious to a reasonable person. I like most legal matters with the needs, desires, and rights of the litigants are important; when children are involved "the best interest of the child" is a primary consideration. It is almost impossible for a person involved in unwinding a relationship, particularly one involving a child, to be objective. An experienced attorney can be of great assistance in obtaining a just and livable outcome.

My background and experience allows me to understand diverse cultures, religious practices and lifestyles. I have lived in the Netherlands, Germany, Korea and Japan. I have lived in every region in the United States except the Midwest. I believe in honesty and transparency. I make myself directly available to my clients. I value your time as much as my own. I try to find the most efficient way to resolve issues. While I have over 30 years experience it is impossible to know everything. I am part of a team of competent and knowledgeable attorneys many of them experts in various practice areas. They are always available to me to consult and help me find solutions to complicated problems.
