I strive to empower clients through effective, caring, and competent representation.
I am very privileged to continue providing family law legal services in Pierce County. I welcome new cases in traditional litigation, uncontested matters, and collaborative law. I offer mediation services and will be serving as a Guardian ad Litem in Pierce County. I am happy to work with clients who are local or who live in other jurisdictions/states with Pierce County matters.
I have been practicing family exclusively since 2010 and have been practicing law in general since 2007. When I am not at the office, I enjoy my volunteer and community work and spending time with my amazing friends and family.
I provide one on one contact with each and every client, which allows me to deliver personally tailored and dedicated legal services.
