About me

Separation and divorce are frustrating and stressful. For more than 40 years I’ve been a strong advocate for my clients during these difficult times. I identify my clients’ goals, decide on the best approach to achieve those goals, and zealously represent my clients to achieve the best results possible. Experience, hard work, tenacity, relationships, support staff and good old common sense go a long way toward helping my clients achieve favorable results.

Although I’ve received many awards and acknowledgements over my career, the most rewarding part of my family law practice is my satisfied clients.
