Review This Lawyer
Summary

I have been in private practice for seven years. My practice is focused exclusively on family law and criminal defense. Over the years I have litigated hundreds of cases, including but not limited to: Complex Divorce matters, Custody, Relocation, Grandparents Rights, Dependency, Termination of Parental Rights, Adoption, Child and Spousal Support, Alimony, Protection from Abuse, DUI, Assault, Rape, and Traffic Offenses.

I attended college at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse and graduated summa cum laude (with highest honors) in 2005. I have a B.S. in psychology, and a Criminal Justice Minor, with a pre-law emphasis. I am a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society. I began law school in 2006 at Widener University School of Law, and graduated in 2009.

Following law school graduation I did an externship at the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs, Counsel Division. The BPOA regulates the 29 professional and occupational licensing boards. Next, I accepted a job as Legislative Counsel for State Senator Anthony Williams. In 2010, I made the decision to move to private practice. I wanted to help people on an individual level, and I knew that my psychology degree would be useful in the family law practice.
