Practice State



I am dedicated to providing the highest level of service to my clients and want them to be satisfied, but I believe in providing my clients with a realistic perspective on the legal system and what they can expect from it.

I attended law school after more than 15 years working with parents and children in early childhood education. When preparing to apply to psychology doctorate programs, I heard a discussion about psychologists testifying in custody cases. Working in the legal field appealed to me and I changed my direction to apply to law school.





My primary focus is on family law cases. The choice of an attorney in a family case is as important as what process to select in family law cases, and my practice includes mediation, collaborative law, and litigation.

The relationship with your family lawyer is not at arms length, and it requires forming a partnership with your attorney. The issues are often complex and need focused attention to detail. I try to work with my clients to develop solutions to their problems and plan for their future.
