Comments

My growth in collaborative law is extremely rewarding to me, as it allows me opportunity to utilize and expand many of the skills I've acquired as a children's advocate and Guardian ad litem. Moreover, I am pleased to be part of a movement which acknowledges an individual's ability to move toward self-determination and growth. I learn from each matter in which I participate.
