All families go through change, and all too often these changes can be painful, confusing or both. I understand that changes such as the end of a marriage can be a very difficult time for my clients, which is why I make a point of listening closely to the problems they're facing and working with them to identify both short-term and long-term goals so that I can design a legal strategy tailored to their particular needs.

I give frank and practical legal advice to my clients. It is my job to help you choose your path from the available legal options.

My goal is to give you the information and support you need so that you will feel more informed and empowered when you leave my office.
