I have been practicing law since 1989. First working in insurance defense, and later in business, real estate, construction, personal injury, divorce, and probate & estate litigation, my early career was litigation based. Later, I worked as corporate counsel, focusing on major issues of contract and business negotiation. In 2001, I returned to private practice and now handle all aspects of Family Law and Divorce actions and have added Estate Planning to my practice. With roots in the area, I am here to assist the community with valuable legal solutions.
My clients appreciate my no-nonsense approach to the law. I assist them in going through some of the most difficult issues they will face. My job is to make the process as painless as possible. Iâll look at any legal situation from every angle, determining not only the best offense but also a perfect counter for any defense. My clients must make tough choices, and itâs up to me to provide counsel so that they can make educated decisions. I do this by patiently walking them through the legal process â providing clear explanations throughout, regarding the proceedings and legal ramifications of any decisions made.
One of the most difficult factors to deal with when involved in any legal action is the feeling of a loss of control. Your fate is in someone elseâs hands. Whether it be a judge, jury or even your beneficiaries in the case of probate proceedings, it is difficult to let go of control when it affects the things you hold dear in life. As an attorney, I can help you get that feeling of control back. Take charge of your assets by putting together a strong and clear estate plan â donât let everything that youâve worked for be decided upon by a third party. Take care of your family by retaining an attorney who will see to it that issues from pre-nuptial agreements to divorce, child custody and visitation agreements, child and spousal support orders, property division, wills, trusts, advanced health care directives and powers of attorney and more. All are taken care of with sensitivity, compassion and your best interests at heart.
With me as your attorney, you can rest assured that I will be personally handling your case. As a sole practitioner I maintain accessibility because itâs vital that an attorney be there to provide answers to your questions as they arise and also to process any new information that may affect your case.
Entering into legal action can prove to be a complex and intimidating possibility that naturally causes a certain amount of trepidation. Allow me to ally your fears by helping you though the process â step by step â helping you choose the right path for your circumstances. I help my clients understand their circumstances, and I advise them on the decisions that they have in front of them, but I never say, âYou must do this.â I am here for my clients both as a counselor, educator and conduit to the legal system.
