Personalized, Attentive, and Knowledgeable. Dedicated To Fight For Your Matter.
I come from a long line of attorneys: the law and justice are in my blood. For the past 19 years, I have served clients in Auburn and throughout south King County and Pierce County with their family law concerns and problems.
Divorce and family law is a very emotional area of the law and I have worked exclusively in this area. I am committed to providing as much support as possible for my clients.
I began working in family law as an intern and then as an attorney for an attorney in King County. In 2003, I opened my own law office in Pierce County. In 2006, I moved my law office back to King County and in 2014 decided to move my office to my home in Auburn.
Because I am a sole practitioner and work out of my home, I am able to spend as much time as needed, whenever needed, on each of my cases. I often have phone conferences in the evenings and weekends to accommodate my clients' schedules. As a result of having maintained offices in both King and Pierce Counties, I am familiar with both Courts and their procedures.
