Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ALII GoldSocial Media

I am an award-winning attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable. I am committed to serving my clients well through assertive, thoughtful advocacy. All cases are handled with care, and with a focus on getting results for the client. It is a team effort and I seek the best resolution for you.

Some results:
I obtained an award of 50% joint physical custody and decision making authority for a father--exactly what he wanted.

I litigated a motion and won a judgment for a mother that she is able to keep primary custody of her special needs daughter.

Through my contract writing, a cyber security firm received the correct contractor agreements in place for its federal contract.

My efforts through legal advice helped keep a CEO's business decisions within the bounds of the law.

A middle-aged professional wins a protective order against her abusive ex-boyfriend.
A man receives a protective order against his harassing ex-girlfriend.

These are just some of the ways I've helped my clients.
