My private law practice focuses upon family law, birth to death. Adoptions,Divorce, Custody, Child Support and Post Decree Modifications are areas of emphasis along with Wills, Estate work, Probate, Guardianships and Conservatorships.
Continued my work at Legal Services, but adding management and community outreach to my duties as staff attorney. Services were provided through the Grand Junction, CO office, Delta/Montrose, CO office and Glenwood Springs, CO offices.
Worked with the Area Agency on Aging to foster the newly developed Nursing Home Ombudsman position to serve the elderly individuals.
My years at Legal Services laid the foundation for my focus on family law, birth to death, when I transitioned back into private practice in October, 1992.
Dealt with individuals qualified for services in the areas of bankruptcy, Social Security Disability, unemployment, and domestic relations involving domestic violence.
Polk County Juvenile Court
Was appointed as the first Attorney/Probation Officer for the Polk County Juvenile Court in Des Moines, IA. This is a place that I also interned for a semester while in law school. In this position, I dealt with children and families in need of assistance and who were juvenile delinquents. This position led to my desire to narrow my focus on family law and domestic relations.
