Lawyer, Mediator

I have practiced law since 1984, specializing in family law cases for over 20 years. Working with clients to understand their options and make positive decisions is rewarding. Collaborative law offers clients the ability for better communication, creative thinking and empowerment. Problem solving and working toward constructive resolution with opposing counsel has been part of my practice over the years. Collaborative work enhances those goals.

Along with the other professionals in the West Seattle Collaborative Law Pod (since folded), we started a Second Saturday presentation at Highline Community College on the second Saturday of each month. My practice is not limited to collaborative law but I believe in the core concepts of forgiveness, transparency and cooperation.
