Prior to finding her passion in family law, she was a business litigator at Reed Smith LLP one of the nation’s 20 largest global law firms.
She has a B.A in psychology from UC Berkeley and has taken countless negotiation trainings at Harvard Law School and other esteemed schools.

Adept at negotiating resolutions and aggressively pursuing litigated outcomes, she also handles straightforward family law cases, pre-and post-marital agreements, and mediated settlements as consulting counsel.

She has ample experience with all types of assets including founders’ shares, restricted stock, stock options, carried interest, general and limited and partnership interests, real estate developments, professional practices, real estate developments, restaurants, bars, and intellectual property such as royalties.
