Biography

I provide comprehensive Estate and Legal Planning and creative, low conflict Collaborative family law solutions in Divorce, Parenting, and Adoption. I practice throughout Montana. You can find me at wholeheartedfamilylaw.com. I am a Certified Montana Mediator and practice Collaborative and cooperative law as much as possible, tailoring my approach to each client's individual needs and setting my flat fees based on the of time and complexity your matter entails. As a Montana native, I received my law degree from the University of Montana School of Law in 2008 and began my career clerking for the Montana Supreme Court. Throughout my career, I have worked in family law, estates and trusts, and general civil litigation. I believe that family law is about knowing what your options are. It is important to know that there are different methods for going through these legal processes, and not all of them have to entail a fight. It is my passion and purpose as a Collaborative family law and estate planning attorney to educate my clients about the steps in the process and their options along the way. I believe that using the right approach to address your family's legal issues will minimize emotional and financial costs for all involved. When I am not advising clients, you can find me enjoying all of the outdoor activities Montana has to offer and spending time with my husband, Andrew, and our wild and crazy dogs.
