I began working with family law clients while attending law school almost thirty years ago. My passion for advocating for “real people” and their families is what drew me to family law and keeps me in the field. I tailor a strategy for every case that is unique to each person. I view my role as assisting you and your family in getting through the transition of divorce intact, emotionally and financially. I can advise you of your options in all types of family cases, from clients working through mediation to cases proceeding to trial.
I am equally comfortable attending mediation with clients, and going to court as an advocate. I work to settle cases and seek results that are best for my clients. Sometimes trials are necessary though, and I will persuasively present your case. I clearly explain the legal process to clients. I want to make sure that my clients have the information that they need to make good decisions in their case.
I represent clients in all stages of divorce. I talk to people who are gathering information as they decide whether they want to dissolve their marriage and those who have made the decision to move forward with a divorce. Clients also often retain me for post-decree work on their case. These are people whose divorce has been finalized, but they need additional legal help after the case was closed. Sometimes these are people seeking changes to child support, spousal maintenance or custody of their children. Post-decree matters may involve issues where one party is not following a court order, and the client needs help with enforcement.
Some clients hire me because they’re not happy with the representation they are getting from their current lawyer. Others meet with me for post-decree matters who were not satisfied with their previous attorney. Regardless of where they are in the legal process, after clients meet with me for the first time, they consistently tell me that they feel much better!
