I concentrate my practice on Family Law and the issues that have led to the breakdown of a family including divorce, child custody, parenting plans, support, alimony, restraining orders and premarital agreements. With my experience, knowledge and creativity, I advocate for my client’s interest in ways that rebuild family stability and financial strength after a divorce or separation.
I am in a unique position to advocate for you because I am experienced in so many tools which you can use to bring a resolution to your conflict. I have extensive education in collaborative divorce and mediation. These are negotiation models that avoid the use of the court. If necessary, I am also an experienced litigator who has conducted trials for over twenty years in the local state courts and therefore, I am knowledgeable of the decisions of the area judges. Having all these options to resolve your case gives you much more control over the outcome.
