About me

I have been practicing family law in King County and Snohomish County for the last 20 years. 


 


I bring a level of personal attention, strategic counseling, and realist budgets in order to maximize my client's results. 


 


  Having been trained and served as a Guardian Ad Litem in KIng County, I am fully aware of the process by which the court determines a parenting plan.   Serving as an attorney, I am a fierce advocate of my client's interest in having a meaningful relationship with his or her children.  


 


I also have an extensive banking, accounting and finance background that gives me the ability to evaluate the most complex property division issues, such as closely-helding companies, investment portfolios, and stock option valuations.
