I am a Certified Family Law Specialist and have focused solely on family law issues since 2005, when I was admitted to the California bar.  

My family law practice is focused on strategizing practical solutions for each client, embracing the ideology every client is unique and benefits from a thoughtful approach to resolving their particular issues.   

I believe in empowering clients with knowledge and am an excellent communicator and listener.  I am particularly attuned to the emotional aspects of family law issues and the necessity for ongoing and active communication to ensure that client’s needs and objectives are met.  I excel at rapport-building both with clientele and with opposing parties or attorneys, focusing on crafting workable solutions. 

I have completed a 40 hour mediation certification program and attempt to resolve matters outside of court and/ or prior to trial whenever possible, I am also a successful advocate in adversarial proceedings and vehemently promote my clients' interests through litigation when necessary.
