About me

Looking forward to assisting you with all of your family law needs!  I've been practicing family law and criminal defense for over 25 years.  Even though the issues involved in Family law and criminal defense can be heart wrenching and very emotional, I've found true joy in assisting others going through this stressful and sometimes frightening time in their lives.  To me, families are up there with the most important parts of life, the family unit is so precious.  I strive to unite the strained hearts of the parties, especially when there are children involved, and assist them in realizing that the destination is healing, whether it be a successul co-parenting routine while residing in two separate homes, financial restoration of assets and division of debts or personal freedom, happiness and safety.

I am ferociously protective of my clients and everyone who walks through our office door becomes a part of our extended family.  I will give you honest  and trustworthy advice and know how to help you acheive the goals while staying within your budget.
