Description of Practice

My office handles divorces, paternity and custody matters through mediation and collaborative law. The focus of my practice is to assist families in their life transitions and growth. My office prides itself on being able to establish personal connections with our clients. When working at law firms, I’ve realized that very often the attorney knew little about the client or the family that they were working with. I wanted to practice differently. I understand that the key to being a trusted counselor and advisor and the key to achieving the clients objectives is to know the client on a personal level.

Professional Background

I have been a practicing attorney since May of 2011. Prior to attending law school, I was a family law paralegal for approximately 20 years. In that time I acted as a Paralegal for several attorneys. For several years before becoming an attorney, I assisted couples through uncontested divorces as a paralegal and document preparation assistance. After establishing my own practice, I used all of my skills and knowledge to develop my family law practice.
