About me

After earning my B.A. in Political Science at the University of California, Davis, I went on to study law at Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon. My emphasis in Law School was the study of family law. This emphasis required specialized classes and even volunteer work. I spent much of my free time pouring over discovery at a local law firm which also specialized in the practice of family law. Following graduation, I continued to show a strong interest in this area of law. I started my own family law practice in 2011 and was hired on as an associate with Herrig & Vogt in 2013.


Family law often involves very serious and very personal legal issues. I give every client the respect they deserve and endeavor to help them delicately resolve issues that often involve the strongest of emotions created by hurt feelings and broken promises. Recognizing how stressful these situations can be, I make it my goal to make the process as peaceful and simple as possible, encouraging litigation only when the other side is being cruel or unreasonable.


Practicing family law requires that the practitioner constantly educate him or herself on the ever-changing patchwork that makes up the family law field. If it can affect my clients, I need to know about it. To that end, I am constantly updating my understanding of the law, attending conferences, meeting with other attorneys and participating in local bar association events.


I am admitted to practice law in all California State Courts, along with the U.S. District Court in and for the Eastern District of California. I am also a member of the American Bar Association: Family law Section, the Placer County Bar Association, the Sacramento County Bar association and the State Bar of California.


For those currently navigating through their own family law matters, I practice primarily in Placer and Sacramento Counties and would welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you might have.
