Comments: My interest in Collaborative Law is based on my belief that family disputes can be resolved with dignity, civility and in a less costly and effective manner than litigation. My practice is focused on Family Law (Adoption, Assisted Reproductive Technology, Collaborative Divorce, Custody), and Mediation throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia.
