As a collaborative divorce and family law attorney, I work hard to help clients creatively resolve their divorce or other family related transition in a way that honors their interests and preserves their dignity throughout the process. I have consistenly received positive feedback from clients on my responsiveness to their concerns, efficient handling of their case, and ability to assert their interests in a way that preserves the integrity of their family relationships.
In addition to having my law degree I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, which I draw upon when there are complex dynamics at play. I believe that families are complex systems and that a collaborative approach results in better outcomes for families. The court system is an adversarial system designed to deliver winners and losers at a steep cost. But I have found that in most divorce and family law cases there are rarely winners, especially when children are involved. Parents and children are better served when they have a team focusing on problem solving as opposed to how a Judge is going to view their case.
I am honored to do the work that I do and view it as a way to help people move through one of life’s most challenging transitions with integrity.
