We Thrive On The Relationships We Build, With People Like You.
Undergoing a serious family law issue can make you feel confused about your future and how to protect your family and assets. Divorce, child custody, and support disputes are difficult experiences and emotionally taxing. Before making any rash decisions, speak with an attorney who can pave the road for the legal process peculiar to family law and take a relationships driven approach.
Divorce · Custody · Support
When we first talk on the phone, you can ask to speak with an attorney who will triage your issues and set the tone for the upcoming process.
After the phone talk with an attorney, you will schedule a one hour consultation in person (telephone and zoom ok too) with the attorney. Attending this consultation allows you to tell your story and allows the attorney to assess a legal strategy.

Reading and writing bring me joy, and I focused my interests at an early age on the law because it is full of written details. Soon I learned that the complexity and structure of the law are also hugely appealing to me. Then, as I began attending court, drafting pleadings, and maintaining correspondence, I discovered I love advocating on behalf of my clients and protecting individuals’ rights.
Advocating for the rights my clients hold dear frees them to focus on their work and live their lives. And that matters as much to me as it does to them.
