Providing Reliable Family Law For
The Kansas City Area

On Your Side

Most of my clients are ordinary hard-working people who simply want to protect their home and their kids’ well-being. I am a strong advocate for my clients, but I am also sensitive to the costs. I try to avoid long drawn-out conflicts, encouraging negotiation and mediation when possible. But when it’s time to fight, I bring years of courtroom experience to your case.

Family law is all I do. I have a reputation for getting good results in these complex and emotionally tangled matters. I believe that communication and personal service is the key, knowing that you are trusting me with very personal issues.

One Step
At A Time

A common concern is not knowing where to even start. We start at the beginning, with me working as your guide. For example, you don’t need years’ worth of tax forms and government documents to start a divorce proceeding; you only need some basic information that you probably already know.

I offer a client-centered approach with a personal touch. I take the time to learn about you, your family, your goals and your expectations. Then I will educate you about the process and give you solid advice at each stage. My mission is to support you and advocate for you through these difficult times.

I serve the Kansas City metro area. I invite you to schedule a time that we can talk about your family law issue and how I can help.
