I worked for a family law firm for three years prior to going to law school. I enjoyed working with the people, and discovered that I could make a big difference in peoples lives in one of the most trying periods of a person's life.
I started my practice with the premise I would always attempt to facilitate a collaborative divorce. Before going to law school, I worked for several years at a family law firm, and saw firsthand the potential of increasing acrimony between spouses when the court system is used haphazardly.
Growing up with separated parents, I think I understand the stress and frustration of a long drawn out family divorce.
The courts should be a place of last resort - who wants a Judge who barely knows you to make decisions for you? That being said, I have had a lot of experience in family law, as well as the closely related field of bankruptcy and am able to be a zealous advocate when necessary. However, my main philosophy is to make things workable between spouses - if there are children, this is even more essential because the love of both parents should be there, and the child shouldn't be made to feel bad about loving both of you.
My bankruptcy practice is an extension of my family practice, as oftentimes what is affordable before a divorce becomes very difficult when two people are paying rent in two different locations. In the past I have worked for a bankruptcy law firm, and have handled hundreds of cases.
