I am a strong, but caring advocate for my clients. I take my role as “Lawyer and Counselor” seriously as we struggle through the complex issues. I have a good reputation and believe I am usually successful as a litigator, or in negotiation for a beneficial settlement for my clients.
My practice is guided by the idea that my clients are, and must be in charge of their own lives. I try to help them focus on improving their future by making good decisions when stress may overcome good judgment, and to make wise decisions for the rest of their lives as the disputes of marriage are resolved.
When I am away from the courtroom and the practice of law, I just enjoy my time with my husband and daughter, and our 3 dogs. We, the five of us, love hiking together, and I love gardening, reading, cooking and knitting, when, and if I have any spare time.
If you think I could help you, or if you have questions about your problems, please call and set up an appointment so that we can discuss these issues privately, and in depth.
