Biography

COVID-19 Notice - Our firm has been working remotely for years. We have not missed a beat. We are still processing family law cases, having hearings via video conference, and settling and finalizing cases every day.

We are happy to help you. My firm is noted for our aggressive representation, meticulous preparation and I charge fair, flat fees. Potential clients can be assured that I have the necessary experience and dedication to family law, and will give each and every client the personal attention that their case requires. I have been practicing for almost 20 years, so I am considered an expert in my field and well regarded by opposing attorneys and judges.

Please note: I DO NOT handle cases when DFCS is involved.

I have a very low caseload, so I only handle one trial matter at a time. You will not have to worry about me not being able to handle your important hearing because I have another scheduled at the same time. I set aside time for each client and each case so you get my undivided attention. I will never hand your case off to an associate.

Legal Answers
Q. Went through a divorce mediation and was not shown assessment letters from my oldest children’s therapists by my lawyer.
A: You can try to contest it, but it will likely not work. If you attorney had documents and you didn't review them before mediation, that isn't a reason why the agreement shouldn't stand.
Q. My divorce has been final for a year and a half. Can my ex subpoena my financials to reduce child support?
A: No unless a new modification case is pending.
Q. My boyfriend has been charged with battery. He wants me to recant. Will I get in trouble? Dcf is involved too.
A: If domestic violence occurred, recanting will not help. DFCS might see this as you unwilling to protect your children from an abusive household. It sounds like the abuse occurred and you ist don't want him to get into trouble for it. However, you need to worry about your safety and your children's safety and not him. Talk to Talk to domestic violence counselor in your county to get specific advice about moving forward and protecting your children.
