Summary

With more than 25 years experience in family and personal injury law, I bring a seasoned expertise to both the conference room and the courtroom. As an experienced trial lawyer in all phases of litigation, I can successfully navigate diverse disputes across a range of legal areas. My expertise as a collaborative practitioner means that I am equally effective in mediating or negotiating a resolution that, when appropriate, does not involve litigation. I also assist clients as a mediator or a mediation-consulting attorney. I understand that every individual circumstance – every dispute – is unique and that one size does not fit all when securing a satisfying outcome. Whether you are in need of representation in front of a private judge or in a public court or seeking an alternative to litigation through collaborative practice or mediation, you can rely on my empathy, experience and advocacy. I have managed my own law practice for more than 20 years. Specialties:Through litigation, collborative practice or mediation, my primary areas of representation include: Family law, divorce, spousal and child support, custody matters, asset distribution, marital and property settlement agreements, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and personal injury matters.
