• Elementary School Teacher

Parenthood and years of teaching elementary school makes me a better lawyer.

I prefer to reach an amicable resolution, in which the parties play an integral role in constructing the final agreement and outcome of their case. Avoiding animosity between parents and fostering a successful co-parenting plan is extremely important in custody cases.

Personal interests:

I complete in local, national and international triathlons, duathlons and marathons.
