Profession(s)

Lawyer, Mediator

I have represented clients through the court process for many years and have seen the damage that litigation often causes to families both financially and emotionally. I am passionate about the collaborative process because it provides separating spouses like you with a more civil and respectful alternative to resolve disputes. I am committed to assisting clients through the collaborative process because it can help you separate with dignity and is the only legal process that has adopted the philosophy of “do no harm” to your children, your family, and to you.

You can expect efficient, approachable, and highly experienced professional services from me. My goal is to achieve excellent results for you at reasonable cost.
