When people hear that I work in family law, the typical reaction is to assume that I only see the worst of people and that I must no longer believe in successful relationships. While it is true that people often come to me during a difficult time, I have to respond to these assumptions by explaining that my clients actually inspire me and remind me that we can get through even the most difficult situations. The person who comes to see me for the first consultation is not the same person that I say good-bye to at the end of the case. Helping people through this process and witnessing the transformation is what makes me love working in family law. It is my goal to help you to resolve any family law issue with the least amount of stress as possible.
My personal experiences help me to understand the experiences of my clients. I grew up with a very extended family as a result of divorce, remarriage, and previous marriages. I now have a step-daughter of my own and am part of an extraordinary co-parenting team.
Areas of Practice:
The emphasis of my practice is non-litigation family law. This means that I focus on resolving family law issues through mediation and consultation.
I also prepare and review premarital agreements, as well as cohabitation agreements and postnuptial agreements.
