Profession(s): Lawyer

What I bring to both my litigation and collaborative practice is a diverse professional background. I have actively litigated in the areas of family law, domestic violence matters, consumer law, public benefts on behalf of the disabled, public utilities as well as defending commercial clients in civil matters across the State of Maryland. In addition, I have also practiced in the realm of criminal law, as an assistant state's attorney. Presently, in addition to my practice, I serve as an adjunct professor of writing and oral advocacy part-time at the University of Baltimore School of Law. I have found that the the collaborative practice of law has deepened my understanding of viable, cost effective and time-saving options available to my clients. I welcome telephone inquiries and am available for consultations to discuss the collaborative process.

Comments: I see collaborative law as the way to assist my clients in obtaining not just a legal divorce but also an emotional and financial 'divorce' from their spouses. As a collaborative practitioner, I am able to provide clients with an expeditious and cost effective avenue to disassembling their marriage, while protecting their children from the harsh environment of litigation.
