My focus is on providing quality, individualized representation for my clients and obtaining the best result for each client's needs. I am committed to making sure my clients know what is happening every step of the way.
My areas of expertise include divorce, dissolutions of domestic partnerships, modifications, adoptions, custody, enforcement and protective orders. My background in criminal defense helps me advocate aggressively on behalf of my clients.
I have been practicing family law since 2007. I obtained his Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law and my bachelor's degree in history from the University of Michigan.
I enjoy mountain climbing, hiking, backpacking, reading literature and Shakespeare.
