I have a decade of experience handling Washington and Oregon family law cases and feel honored and lucky to have learned from the best of the best. I bring that wealth of knowledge to my practice but what truly sets me apart is my accessiblity to clients, attention to detail and approach to resolving cases in a peaceful manner. I give my clients straight answers and the support they need to reach negotiated settlements.
Each client and family are different and I recognize that for some, a negotiated resolution is not possible and in those instances, I provide competent and effective trial advocacy.
I also offer flexible payment options to clients so may be able to offer services to those who cannot afford high retainers. Please think of me when you know somone in need of the services I offer.
When I am not working, I enjoy doing Vinyasa yoga, gardening, backpacking and bike riding with my daughter trailing behind me.
