Biography

Navigating the complex maze of divorce and custody is challenging enough. Going through it with a special needs child, who is especially vulnerable to family conflict, changes in their environment, or modifications to the family routine, requires a different level of support and understanding. Similarly, exiting an abusive relationship requires counsel who understands the dynamics and works to insulate you and your children from further victimization.

As a parent with first-hand experience, I've dedicated my law practice to helping families in these situations. No one wants to go through a divorce and disrupt their family's well-being. The goal is to get through these life transitions as efficiently, effectively, and compassionately as possible.

My clients say they chose me because of my ability to view each family situation as unique and communicate appropriately, understanding the nuances while shepherding them through the complex legal maze. I enjoy working with people and figuring out ways the law can help them to achieve a positive resolution for the entire family.

With a strong project management background, I can move through large quantities of information quickly and efficiently, saving my clients time and money. With a decade of consulting experience, I focus on listening to my client's concerns while ensuring we stay focused on the task.
