Caring, Compassionate, Collaboration

Family disputes are a natural part of life and there is nothing shameful, or more difficult, than going through a difficult family experience – it is a privilege for me to walk alongside someone through that process and make it to the other side of promise and opportunity. The unique factors of every client’s story keep me engaged and challenged by this career choice.

I have affordable fees to preserve your assets, I care about client’s maintaining their emotional well-being, and client’s controlling their outcome with non-litigation options to resolve family disputes. Court intervention is the last resort, not the default option.

Understand client’s objectives and goals at onset of attorney/client relationship. Determine together what is best route to achieve the client’s objectives and work harmoniously toward reaching objective as effectively, efficiently and as caringly as possible.

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us to embrace.
