You Matter — Your Case Is Personal to Me

Ever felt like your family problems have fallen upon deaf ears? Feel like your attorney is there, but not listening? Nothing disturbs me more than having conversations with people who seem like they’re mentally floating in some galaxy far, far away instead of paying attention to matters at hand.

I’m educated. I’m a people person. Understanding that every family man and woman walking through the door will have problems indicative of their future parenting or marriages is my job. I do not take cases and “categorize” them; instead, each individual seeking my legal expertise opens a new chapter in my personal practice. An attorney cannot know and understand a client without having walked in their shoes. I’ve walked in your shoes many, many times. 

Fearless. Determined. Effective. 
That’s the representation you want, 
so that’s what I deliver.
