About me

In addition to practicing law for over 26 years, with the support of my husband I have raised three children to adulthood.  I have been an active volunteer with Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts for 12 years.  I am a volunteer judge for the Tri-Valley Youth Court which helps juvenile offenders avoid the traditional juvenile justice system.  As a mother of an active duty soldier, I am also active with the local chapter of Blue Star Moms.


I enjoy kayaking, bird watching and Krav Maga in which I've earned my green belt.

  • Robert Chang

    An amazing trial lawyer and negotiator who will likely get you the best results. This is the lawyer you want to hire. I don't practice criminal law often but when it intersects with my family or bankruptcy law practice, she is the first person I call.
