Biography

I transitioned to divorce and family law after 15+ years working in accounting and operations for start-up technology companies. I strongly believe lawyers overlook the client experience and often force clients to work their way instead of the best way for the client. I try to look at everything from the client's perspective and make every effort to make things as easy as possible for them.

I strongly believe the best way to resolve disputes is through direct communication with the other party. The court system should be the last resort, and we have no problem advising clients that they are better off handling an issue themselves if that is the best approach for the client. I view the client relationship as a long-term collaboration rather than a quick, one-time money grab. I would rather that a client be completely confident in recommending us to a friend, or come back years later when they do need a lawyer. Almost all orders in cases with children need to be modified at some point for changes to child support, the parenting schedule or college expenses. My goal is that once someone becomes a client, they never even consider calling someone else when they need an attorney. If they have a great experience working with us, feel like we understood their goals and represented them well, and they received good value for the money they spent, there should (hopefully!) be no reason to start over with a new attorney.

I specialize in divorces with financial issues, whether high-income or net worth, family-owned businesses, real estate, retirement assets, or stock options and other equity compensation. All divorces have a range of issues though, so I am certainly not limited to financial cases by any means. Every case is unique, which is the reason I love doing what I do.

    We are one of the very few firms that offer true flat fees for Family Law. We feel hourly fees encourage inefficiency because there is no incentive to improve, and the client ultimately pays for that lack of efficiency. We want to change the way legal services are delivered, and we want every client to have a great experience and be excited to refer their friends and family to us.

Legal Answers
50 Questions Answered
Q. If I flee d.v. from my husband and leave the home with our son can he call the police on me for kidnapping?
A: Your husband could definitely call the police, the question is what the police would do. I would suggest applying for an abuse prevention order, which can be done at the District Court or Probate and Family Court, or you can go to a police station to file a report there and they will assist you by contacting the "on-call" judge that is available 24 hours/day.

You should focus on your safety in the short term, and I would also suggest contacting domestic violence resources that can assist you, such as DOVE, YWCA, or New Hope just to name a few.
Q. Can my spouse sell the house without my consent? Only his name is on the deed, he bought the house after we got married
A: If a divorce has been filed, he would be prohibited from selling the property without your agreement or an order of the court based on the automatic restraining order (Rule 411). It would be a good idea to file for divorce ASAP if you haven't yet, you could ask the court to prevent him from doing anything with the proceeds from the sale until there is an agreement or court order otherwise.
Q. Can I file a divorce completely online without having to go to court if my partner is in agreement with the divorce?
A: You can e-file all the required documents with the court, then the court will typically schedule you for a Zoom hearing. The e-filing system isn't entirely intuitive, but if you are somewhat tech-savvy you will be able to figure it out. You can also mail the documents to the courthouse instead of going there in person if e-filing doesn't work for you.
