I am a sole practitioner who answers her own phone and makes her own appointments. If you hire me, you will always be working with me, not an associate or paralegal. My primary concern is providing the information you need to make important decisions -- call anytime for a free consultation and never sign anything without reading it carefully, first! I am licensed in Utah, Idaho, New York and California. With the exception of California, I have lived and practiced law in each of these jurisdictions.

I know choosing an attorney is tough, and hopefully this information helps you. I co-founded my law firm, Just Law in 2010 because I saw a need for a different type of law firm. One that wasn't focused on a make money at all costs mentality. One that didn't leave scorched earth in the wake of a family law case. My law partner and I started a firm where we focus on the family and we try to be settlement-oriented, but still tough when we need to be. Our flat fee approach ensures that the focus...

Considering divorce?

If a person wishes to terminate his or her marriage, he or she may file for a divorce. In a divorce proceeding, the court will terminate the marriage and determine the rights and responsibilities of the divorcing parties regarding child custody, child visitation, child support and spousal support (alimony). The court will also redistribute marital assets.

Depending on where you reside and where your assets are, the division of property can be a very simple or very complex process. Disputes often arise during this phase of a divorce if the two parties disagree as to who should receive which assets or property.

Finding a divorce lawyer who is experienced and reliable can reduce your stress and help you make the best choices possible. A good divorce lawyer should be a problem solver who is skilled at negotiation and possesses a solid trial background. If both parties are open to alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration or mediation, finding a lawyer experienced in collaborative divorce or divorce mediation would be beneficial.

Divorce lawyers also handle child custody issues, including multi-state and international child custody situations. Some divorce lawyers may be certified by their states as being family law specialists. Certification often requires that a lawyer meet certain experience and educational criteria.


Legal Custody: A parent with legal custody has the right to decide on the child's upbringing, education, and medical care. A court may grant legal custody to one parent (sole legal custody) or both parents (joint legal custody).

Separate Property: Property acquired before marriage or during the marriage as a gift or inheritance, or bought during marriage with separate property.
