Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I have helped over 3,000 people through the divorce process in my career. I try to educate my clients so they understand the law and what a "reasonable settlement" looks like. Over 95% of my cases settle without having to do a trial because I work hard to reach creative solutions to these emotional issues.
