Professional, Caring Advice
I am a Collaborative Lawyer, Mediator, Negotiator, Peacemaker and Litigator. During my many years of practice, I have seen first-hand the emotional and financial stress that a lengthy and hostile court cases have on all members of a family, particularly children. Because I knew there had to be a better way to help my clients minimize the stress of a separation, I received training in Collaborative Family Law and Mediation. I have found that these methods help families create quick, cost-effective and long-lasting solutions that work for their unique situation. When court is necessary, I help guide my clients through the challenges of the court process.
