Comments

I work exclusively as a collaborative divorce lawyer, mediator and settlement negotiator. I believe that my clients know best what they and their other family members need; I believe that they need to exercise control over their own lives and therefore their own cases. I help them to develop and prioritize their goals and concerns for themselves and their families and to honor the goals and concerns of their partners. My commitment is to work collaboratively with my colleagues to support families before, during and after a separation or divorce.
