Description of Practice

I have over 20 years of experience as a Family Law Attorney and my practice is devoted solely to helping people stay out of court in order to minimize the emotional and financial strain of the traditional, adversarial divorce. I offer services as a Mediator, Collaborative Divorce Attorney, and Consulting/Cooperative Attorney for parting couples who want to stay out of court and resolve their family law issues with dignity and respect.

Professional Background

I have been practicing family law since 1999 and served as a Staff-Attorney for a non-profit, litigating domestic violence cases for 5 years. Recognizing the benefits of non-adversarial options for parting couples, I opened my private practice in 2007, offering compassionate and cost-effective services as a mediator and collaborative divorce attorney. With extensive experience and training in assisting diverse populations, I am especially sensitive to issues of race, class, culture, gender, and sexual orientation, and welcome traditional, non-traditional, blended, and LGBTQ families to my practice.
