Compassion guides my approach to family law. Helping people navigate the layered financial and emotional challenges that come with family matters of every kind is exactly why I started this career in the first place—and what’s kept me going for more than 20 years. Open, honest, and clear communication lays the groundwork for every client relationship, because it’s extremely important to me that my clients know what to expect every step of the way. Traditional litigation isn’t right for everyone though, which is why we offer our clients mediation and collaborative family law as options as well.
