I have been a family law attorney since I passed the Alabama State Bar Exam in 1998. Through the years I have developed creative strategies and practices that I utilize to effectuate swift, positive results for my clients. I recognize that family law issues are often overwhelming and emotional. Whether the case involves divorce, child custody and visitation or asset division and preservation, I understand that each issue is important to my clients. I strive to act with compassion for my clients, yet always maintaining the much-needed objectivity to move my clients' cases in a realistic direction. I will fiercely advocate for my clients, while doing so with honesty and integrity.
I received my undergraduate degree from Florida State University and my JD from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham. Upon graduation from Cumberland and passing the Alabama Bar Exam, I began practicing law with a small law office in downtown Birmingham. It was there where I began to hone my practice by spending a lot of time in Family Court and working closely with the Department of Human Resources (DHR).
In March of 2013, I opened my own firm and have been serving clients with compassion, integrity and objectivity ever since. The firm continues to concentrate the practice in Family Law, Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Domestic Abuse, Grandparent Custody, Stepparent Custody and all matters of Adoption cases.
When not working I enjoy spending time with my husband Jason J. Bonar (who is also an attorney) and our children. We are avid travelers and always enjoy a good vacation destination.
