Retired judge advocate with 30 years of legal experience whose extensive family law practice includes representation of clients in legal matters for adoption, paternity, child support, divorce with or without children, custody, and post-decree modification of orders for legal decision-making and parenting time.
I specialize in representation of men in women in uniform. Over a 28 year career with United States Army I started as a young infantry private, rising to the rank of SSG before selection to Officer Candidate School and a "butter-bar" commission risising to company CDR. After attending law school I reentered active duty as a Judge Advocate.
I began my legal career as a prosecutor and was immediately drawn to the court room. I worked tirelessly to be an exceptional attorney, representing clients aggressively with compassion, integrity, and honesty. I achieved my ambitions, consistently achieving better than expected results for my clients over the years.
The army was my "home" for 12 years, but I left active duty in 1997, serving another 15 years as a reservist. In the private sector I held positions as outside counsel to Fortune 500 companies, senior associate in a highly respected firm, corporate executive, and even government official. My practice included representing clients in a variety of practice areas before a multitude of courts and tribunals, each with their own unique practice requirements. I credit hard work, exceptional mentorship, and great staff for my success over a long career.
I activated from the reserves from 2009-12, completing 3 successive tours in support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. I took off my uniform for the last time in 2012 and chose Southern Arizona as my home for the warmth, values, and rich diversity, along with the friendliness.
Initial one-hour consultation is $100.00 and hourly rate of $225.00 per hour. Flat-rate fee representation and flexible payment plans available upon case evaluation
