Matters of Family Law can create more stress on you than almost anything else. I understand this and work with compassion and personal attention for the best possible resolution to your situation.  I am always accessible to my clients and responsive to their needs.  In addition, I am also committed to providing an atmosphere that fosters trust and confidence.  My role in any case is to provide excellent legal representation to my clients. If cases cannot be resolved out of court, I will provide you with zealous advice and counsel at every stage of the litigation. I believe in a friendly, informal work atmosphere where we can better get to know and appreciate our clients and their individual needs. My client goals are my legal mission.
