My approach to each family law case is specifically tailored to the needs of each client. Some cases require aggressive litigation, while other times, settlement is the best (and cheapest) choice for all involved.

I enjoy partnering with my clients to get them their desired outcome. I am also very responsive to client communication. I pride myself on keeping you...

I began practicing family law in 1999 and worked for a non-profit for 5 years where I successfully represented survivors of domestic violence and their children in court. In 2007 started my own family law practice to offer services for those who want to divorce using a non-adversarial model. I offer Mediation, Collaborative Practice, and other forms of settlement oriented methods of divorce that seek to find a mutually agreeable resolution for both parties.

I started my practice with the premise I would always attempt to facilitate a collaborative divorce. Before going to law school, I worked for several years at a family law firm, and saw firsthand the potential of increasing acrimony between spouses when the court system is used haphazardly. Growing up with separated parents, I think I understand the stress and frustration of a long drawn out family divorce. The courts should be a place of last resort - who wants a Judge who barely knows you to make decisions for you? That being...
