Sole Practitioner

Dealing with a divorce and its aftermath is never easy. Issues of property division, child custody, and spousal support are usually highly emotional and time-consuming. As an experienced family law and divorce lawyer, I help clients through this difficult process, so they can begin their lives again.

At my practice I represent clients in matters involving:

  • Divorce
  • Legal separation
  • Property division
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Post-divorce modifications
  • And other matters

In numerous divorce cases involving significant marital property, I have helped my clients obtain fair divisions of property which protected their interests. Sometimes these agreements were reached through negotiation and a mutual desire of the parties to secure a fair agreement. Other times, a more firm and determined approach was needed. Whatever the circumstances, I work hard to obtain the best possible result for my client.

My own experience as a divorced spouse helps me to understand the emotional and financial turmoil which my clients face. As a loving and committed parent, I understand the special pressures which divorce places on parents and children. My goal as a family law attorney is to obtain positive results for my clients, so they can build a new future for themselves and their families.
