Family Law; it's our name, it's what we do.
I have been practicing family law since 1997. I am a member of the American Bar Association, the California Bar Association, and the Sonoma County Bar Association. Prior to commencing practice in Sonoma County, I worked with the Marin Family Law Center assisting clients in need of family law services who had limited incomes.
Currently, I serve as a volunteer panelist for the Sonoma County Courts and conduct Settlement Conferences for contested Family Law matters. I have served as President and Director of Sonoma County Women in Law and was a member of the Sonoma County Family Law Best Practices Committee.
In addition to training in collaborative law and completing the San Francisco Bar Mediation training, I have been appointed by the Sonoma County Superior Court to serve as a private judge yielding another perspective to any family law matter.
I have skillfully litigated hundreds of cases and, in addition to providing legal services in the courtroom, I provide inspired mediation services to assist families in settling their own disputes with expertise, respect and compassion.
