Summary

I have been practicing law in Anchorage, Alaska since 1977. I started practicing law as a business and commercial lawyer. I helped business clients solve the many business and commercial problems they faced in running their companies. I learned alot, but I did not have a passion for what I was doing. Then an opportunity came along, which changed my life. A good friend and family lawyer decided to leave Alaska. She asked if she could refer her divorce clients to me. I said yes. The rest is history. 21 years and many clients later, I still love what I do. I have the experience to give people the advice they need to make thoughtful decisions for their future. I have worked with clients in Anchorage, on the Kenai, in the Mat-Su Valley, and Fairbanks. I have represented clients from many walks of life from subsistence fishermen to successful business owners. Making a positive difference in the lives of my clients is a core value for me.

Q. How do I find out who got me on child support
A: You should be entitled to take a paternity test to see if you are the father of the child in question. I would contact CSSD here to discuss this issue if they are refusing to disclose the name of the mother to you.
Q. Retiring in August 2015. Spouse and I have agreed to go our seperate ways. Divorce vs. Anullment.
A: If you and your spouse had a child during marriage, then you have a couple of options. The first is to file a joint petition for dissolution. The second option is to file an uncontested divorce case. You can find the forms on-line at http://www.courts.alaska.gov/shc/family/shcforms.htm.
