About Our Firm

"It's my belief that my role as a family law attorney is not limited to providing legal counsel. Family law is an especially difficult area because the things and people we most dearly value are often at stake. My job is to help my clients negotiate very difficult and often painful terrain patiently and compassionately. I'm deeply interested in my clients as people and work tirelessly to ensure the best interests of my clients and their children."
