Practice areas

I was raised in a small rural town in Northern California, spending my summers sailing, hiking, and teaching swim lessons to children.

From a young age, I was interested in the study of law. As a minor child, I was a witness in my parent’s divorce proceeding. I understand the toll divorce takes on children, particularly the feeling of not having a voice in custody / visitation decisions. In dissolution actions, advocating for the best interests of the children is a primary concern. At University of San Francisco, I worked as a child advocate for the San Francisco Superior Court through the Child Advocacy Clinic.

I served as a law clerk at Justice Now and Bay Area Legal Aid. At Justice Now, I provided post-appellate legal services to women at Central California Women’s Facility and Valley State Prison for Women. This experience piqued my interest in prisoners’ rights and I collaboratively published a law review article “Prisons as a Tool of Reproductive Oppression” in the Stanford Law Review.

The following year, I obtained an internship with a private family law firm and volunteered for the JusticeBus program, where I travelled to rural areas to provide pro bono legal services to self-represented family law litigants.

Upon graduation, I have dedicated my practice of law to family law. I obtained employment with a small family law firm in San Francisco, California that specialized in the representation of people with complex mental health issues and high assets.

Since coming to Levine Law Group, I have become particularly involved in the LGBT aspect of the practice, assisting heavily with Donor/Assisted Reproduction Agreements, Second Parent Adoptions, Cohabitation Agreements, Marvin actions, Pre/Post-Nuptial and Transmutation Agreements.

In my spare time, I enjoy surfing, hiking, musical sing-a-longs, and traveling.
