I love the law. I believe that everyone deserves a happy life. I have a passion for helping families through the messy, and very emotional, family law process.

I have children of my own and have personally gone through the family law process in my own life. This life experience helps me sympathize with my clients and looks out for their best interest, and the best interest of the children.
