Experienced, Client-Focused Family Law Representation

I've spent 10 years working in family law. In those years, I've handled a wide range of cases and developed the tools to help you resolve your case with the best possible results in mind. I've learned when negotiation and mediation can work, and when it's necessary to litigate a case in front of a judge.

I've seen that most people do a better job of negotiating their settlements for divorce or child custody than relying on a judge to make decisions for them. I try to focus on reaching an agreement with the other side, saving you time and money in the process. I have the experience to know what you can expect a judge to award you and using that information to build our strategy.

I also focus on giving you the benefits of my experience, educating you along the way so that we can work together as an informed team. You will always have the opportunity to know things like:

  • My strategy for your case.
  • How I am handling your case.
  • What I think we can reasonably expect to achieve.
  • Why I am pursuing a particular strategy.
  • What my expectations are for how your case will proceed.

It does your case no good if you're left in the dark. I don't just prepare your case for the family law process, I prepare you. For a client-focused approach to your family law case, contact me today to set up a consultation.
