I am an attorney at law and partner at Wechsler Becker LLP, practicing Family Law, and helping my clients through a stinky part of their lives. This involves anything from divorce, parenting plans, child support, paternity actions, third party custody actions and agreed adoptions, usually by step-parents or grandparents. The only reason I went to law school was to practice Family Law. It's the most likely area of law in which a person will be engaged, and I wanted to help people. I got my wish, love my practice, and have met some very cool clients and colleagues.
Prior to joining Wechsler Becker LLP, I was a solo practitioner for 10 years with my own firm, and before that I had the pleasure of working for 10 years for one of the pillars of Western Washington Family Law, who was a fabulous mentor: Bob Prince. It was an honor to work for one of the most ethical attorneys I know.
Law is my second career; the first one was 16 years in broadcast video production, working in TV stations in Montana and Washington, producing news, commercials and local programming. I even won an Emmy!
