I went to UC Hastings College of Law with the intention of practicing Family Law. I was drawn to the emotional nature of the work, and to the great positive impact that my work could have on families.
To that end, I worked for the San Francisco Family Law self-help center all through law school, and was selected to be a judicial extern for the San Francisco Unified Family Court. I also worked as a research assistant for both Kelly Weisberg and Lois Weithorn, the two Family Law professors at Hastings. I engaged in in-depth research projects and wrote substantive contributions to their casebooks.
Theory is all well and good, but the practice of Family Law is really what inspires me. I worked in private practice as an associate at the Law Offices of Susan L. Jeffries for four years before opening my own law office. I practice solely Family Law. I assist my clients with a wide range of services, from the preparation of pre- or post-nuptial agreements to negotiating settlements on property and support, to representing clients at contested hearings.
Throughout it all, I endeavor to make a difficult time more bearable for each client, whether that be through easing their minds by giving them information on their legal rights, or by working on a limited scope basis to provide legal services at a lower cost.
