My practice is dedicated to family law. I bring comprehensive legal experience and personal sensitivity to each client and their family, helping to define goals and develop a realistic strategy for accomplishing them, while considering each unique situation with particular attention to the needs of the children. I encourage reasoned resolution to conflict that is in the best long-term interests of the family, utilizing mediation, collaborative law and traditional litigation as needed, to address the many aspects of family disputes.

CommentsToo often the traditional adversarial process exacerbates the trauma of going through a divorce. Collaborative divorce is an intelligent and dignified alternative to litigation that allows a divorcing couple to self-determine the process with a shared focus on the best interests of their children. Although a collaborative divorce is not appropriate for all, it holds great promise for both spouses and their children to begin their new lives with a healthy and strong foundation.
