About me

With a background in litigation, Sharnel knows her way around a courtroom.  But, she also knows that being a successful family law attorney means finding common ground when worlds collide



For Sharnel, negotiating differences is second nature, and she
never shies away from a challenge. Whether or not a case goes to trial,
her goal is to achieve the highest quality result while preserving the
client’s dignity, sense of family and financial security.



From the first thought of divorce, custody, or modification,
through the final paperwork, Sharnel guides clients through the legal
process, giving them the tools to succeed with a strong legal voice.
