About me

I have been an attorney for 24 years and I specialize in family law--which includes divorce, custody, financial support and domestic violence.  I make every effort to resolve issues without court involvement to save expense for my client.  If litigation is required, I have decades of courtroom experience and work hard to achieve the best outcome.  I provide compassionate guidance and fierce legal advocacy for cases where litigation is unavoidable.  


I grew up in the Seattle area and have spent the majority of my legal career practicing in the greater Puget Sound area.
