I am a 1993 graduate of the University of Michigan Law School. I have practiced family law for 29 years. I am the past Chair of the Oakland County Family Court Committee and am trained and certified as a Domestic Relations and General Civil Mediator. I have been a member of the Collaborative Practice Institute of Michigan and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals since 2009. Although I have an extensive background in civil, commercial and family law litigation, and have represented numerous clients at trial, I firmly believe that whenever possible, family law matters should be resolved through dialogue, negotiation, and collaboration, rather than through litigation.

Area(s) of Practice: Family Law (Divorce, Custody, Paternity, Parenting Time, Child Support, Spousal Support, Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements) General commercial and business litigation (contract disputes, dissolution of partnerships and closely-held companies) Probate matters (administration of estates, probate litigation, guardianship and conservatorship matters) Mediation and arbitration Collaborative Practice
