Firm Overview

Divorce, family law, adult State and Criminal Law, juvenile law (child dependency, juvenile criminal law), custody, child support, and several other categories.

Established in Oregon, April 2000. Previously licensed in Oregon, Washington, and Washington, D.C. Court of Appeals. Previous focus was primarily in criminal law. Moved to Nebraska in 2005 and began to focus in family law, and other areas of civil law. I will be adding bankruptcy, guardianship, and adoptions soon.

Example cases

I have had 25% of my criminal cases dismissed because of Motions to Suppress and have won more than half of my trials. I have also won three of three appeals in criminal law matters.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I didn't...it chose me!

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I believe that clients should self-educate themselves in the area of helping children deal with divorce and separation as much as possible, as well as in areas of parental rejection. The more a client self-educates, the more helpful he or she will be to the attorney who is representing him or her and the more helpful to their own children.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to do that upon client request.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am willing to do that upon client request.
