I feel like practicing Family Law allows me to help people by educating them about the law and by handling complex legal issues on their behalf. I am a part of the third generation of attorneys to practice at Conrad Trosch and Kemmy and am now a partner at the firm. I am a Board Certified Family Law Specialist, and have been trained in collaborative law. I am not a one-trick pony unless the pony is called common sense. I take an approach to my practice that causes me to wear a lot of hats. I am an aggressive advocate when necessary, and at other times I help my clients see that settling is a reasonable way out of court. I think quickly on my feet, which allows me to perform well not only in litigation, but also in a stressful time-sensitive negotiation. What I enjoy the most about Family Law is that it encompasses so many other areas of the law. A Family Law attorney also needs to understand Real Estate Law, Estate Planning, Business Law, tax Law, Criminal Law, and Bankruptcy, just to name a few. I enjoy the constant intellectual challenge. My goal is always to give my client the peace of resolution in the least damaging way possible to their family. The most rewarding part of my practice is seeing my clients, who have just gone through one of the most difficult times of their lives, with a smile of relief because their case is resolved. It is that “light at the end of the tunnel” moment that keeps my clients and me pushing forward toward resolution.
