Description of Practice

Hello! Thank you for visiting my page. I am a Certified Family Law Specialist - I have been a family law attorney for almost 20 years. My purpose as an attorney and mediator is to help separating couples move on in the healthiest manner possible. The court system does not cater to individual's needs. It was not designed for that. For separating families, it is important for attorneys to educate clients on the many solutions that are out there. Many couples who got stuck in the legal system never knew there was an option to mediate. My practice focuses on educating couples on the many alternatives out there, and then guiding them to the next chapter in their lives.
