I focus my efforts to ensure that my clients understand the legal process and make well informed decisions. I am an aggressive advocate while remaining focused on global settlement.
As the managing partner, I can appreciate the complexities that business owners face during a divorce.
I am experienced in drafting and reviewing prenuptial agreements, which ensures my clients' interests are protected so that if unfortunate and unexpected circumstances arise, they have an "insurance policy" to protect their separate property interests.
