I have been practicing law since 1981 with a concentration in all areas of family law. I became a family relations law certified specialist in 2008. I have been trained in collaborative law for 10 years and believe strongly in its principles of helping clients move through the dissolution of their marriage and restructuring of their family in a civilized, dignified way and believe that collaborative family law provides the process within which to do that.
