Biography

It is my goal is to provide my clients with outstanding legal representation. To accomplish that, I seek to: (1) take the time necessary to understand your personal circumstances, needs, goals, and concerns; (2) be well-informed of new developments in the law and how those developments affect you; (3) utilize the most suitable, efficient, and cost-effective strategies to accomplish your objectives; and (4) provide you the peace of mind that you have hired an attentive, responsive and compassionate attorney to help you through difficult times.

I treat my clients like family, protecting their interests as if they were my own, and making sound recommendations to help them accomplish their legal goals. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a positive difference in your life.

I aspire to foster long-term relationships with my clients, so you will find that I am very accessible. I answer my own email & text messages and respond promptly. I return phone calls within 24-hours. To consistently provide outstanding legal service to you, I will draft your documents myself and I will not the pass legal work on to a paralegal.

53 Questions Answered
Q. My ex husband stopped making spousal support payments in April. What Can I do?
A: You may need to take your ex-spouse to court and you should definitely consult an attorney about this issue because long-term spousal support is very complex. You could start by reaching out to your ex-husband and making sure he knows where to send you his spousal support checks. While his unemployment and retirement don't automatically give him the ability to stop paying (unless that is in your divorce judgment), they can create a situation where he could go to court and get the spousal support terminated or reduced. So, I cannot recommend enough that you take your divorce judgment and get a consultation with an attorney.
Q. If I signed on my brothers will and he told after he passes to read it. The will was stolen by his son.
A: It is highly probable that your brother had his original will stolen because most attorneys no longer store originals for clients. Your brother should prepare a new will and store it where his son will not easily find it. If your brother is already deceased, then the executor of his estate should have lodged the original will with the court within 30 days of death. You can view that will by going to the clerk’s office (currently this might require an advance appointment) because it is now a public record.
Q. A party provided false statements in a declaration in connection to a motion, what objections can I use?
A: You can object to each individual statement in numerous different ways. I highly recommend that you consult with an attorney to help you present the best responses.
