With years of experience mediating disputes, and working with clients as a family law attorney, I believe in the collaborative divorce process, and its ability to offer clients control, dignity, and much more peace of mind than traditional divorce litigation. While it is true that not every family dispute is a good fit for the collaborative process, many people, when committed to open and honest communication about their interests and concerns, are able to have a ‘better divorce’ when they engage in the collaborative process.
I genuinely care about my clients and their matters, and I believe that I enjoy my work more because of this. I am committed to helping you acheive a positive and legally sound outcome. Please call today if you are interested in a free consultation to learn more about the collaborative process and how it may help you and your family maintain wellbeing during what is often a difficult transition.
I speak Spanish and Norwegian, and work frequently with Spanish-speaking clients, both as an attorney and as a volunteer.
