I am one of the founding partners of Hittelman Strunk Law Group. I graduated from Arizona State University summa cum laude (B.A., 1999) and obtained my law degree from the highly ranked University of California, Los Angeles School of Law (J.D., 2003).
I was admitted to the California Bar and the United States District Court for the Central District of California in 2003. After practicing one year in public interest as a special education attorney on behalf of parents and their special needs children, I dedicated myself to the practice of family law. I have extensive experience in representing litigants with complex family law issues. After seven years of practice focused exclusively on family law, I pursued and earned designation as a Certified Family Law Specialist from the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization in 2010.
I had the honor of working as an adjunct professor at the University of California, Irvine, School of Law 2012-2013 and Spring 2016. As an adjunct, I taught the Family Violence Clinic in which certified law students, along with a supervising attorney, represent clients at domestic violence hearings.
I have extensive experience in representing litigants with complex family law issues, including business valuation, high-asset property division and high stakes custody litigation. I am an effective litigator, but I also take reasonable and pragmatic approaches to the settlement of issues within a case, whenever possible.
I am a member of the Orange County Bar Association, a member of the Orange County Association of Certified Family Law Specialists, and actively take part in Mommy Esquire within the Orange County Bar Association. I am a board member of Laura’s House, which is an organization that dedicates itself to providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, legal services and counseling to domestic violence survivors and their children.
