My family law practice serves individuals in traditional and non-traditional familial relationships. For clients transitioning out of relationships, the practice is particularly well suited for individuals who are interested in ending and resolving their relationships not as enemies and who embrace a willingness to face the difficult transition of changing a family’s constellation in a manner that will maximize the possibility for an amicable, positive, and healthy long-term outcome for themselves and their family.
I am committed to helping to empower my clients by providing them with the information they need to make educated and informed decisions about the important legal matters affecting their lives. My practice is focused on helping people resolve their real life conflicts and legal problems with grace, integrity and as peacefully as possible. I assist and support my clients in navigating the necessary court processes and provide the information they need to make the right decisions for themselves and their family. I follow a practice model that focuses on collaboration, alternative methods of resolving conflict and creative problem solving to find solutions to personal and family issues that avoid unnecessary adversarial positioning, costly court battles and the bitterness often associated with divorce and custody disputes.
