About me

Family lawyers usually meet people at one of the most difficult times of their lives. The breakup of the family, especially when children are involved, can be extremely challenging both emotionally and financially. My practice focuses on taking a reasonable, common sense approach to resolving disputes between parties without an unnecessary escalation in conflict. My background in accounting has really helped my clients understand the financial piece of the divorce process, which affects the division of their assets as well as their responsibility to support their children.

I work passionately toward achieving successful results with minimal animosity and court involvement.
