Experienced and compassionate attorney empowering clients to creatively resolve family conflict.
Dedicated to empowering clients to make the best decisions they can as they navigate through the emotional, financial, and legal aspects of a divorce. I am a trial attorney, certified collaborative divorce attorney, and certified mediator in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I focus solely in family law, and assist my clients with traditional litigation, negotiated settlements, mediation, arbitration, and collaborative divorce.
I help families with their issues in areas of divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, spousal support, and property division, along with post-judgment issues that arise in those areas. I do this through different processes for divorce such as traditional litigation, negotiated settlements, mediation, arbitration, and collaborative divorce. I also assist with prenuptial agreements, or agreements regarding property prior to getting married.
I am very passionate about my clients and what I do, and I am dedicated to educating my clients about issues that involve the family. I post regularly on my Michigan Family Law blog and AVVO. I have been a guest columnist in local newspapers, including the Northville Record. I have been interviewed on family law issues by ABC News and print media, including the Detroit News.
In 2009 I was certified as a Divorce and Custody Mediator after rigorous training at the Mediation Training and Consultation Institute. I was certified as a Collaborative Divorce Attorney after completion of the Collaborative Divorce Basic Training in 2020. I attended Advanced Mediation and Collaborative Training in 2012 and 2020, and completed my Domestic Violence Screening Protocol Training in 2009.
I have been named to the Michigan Super Lawyers "Rising Stars," demonstrating a high degree of professional achievement and peer recognition. Each year, no more than 2.5% of the lawyers in Michigan receive this prestigious designation.
