Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult and challenging chapters in a person’s life. Most people feel scared of the process, uncertain of the future, and vulnerable. It is at this exact time that the support of an attorney who will look out for their best interests becomes invaluable.
I pride myself on being able to empathize with my client’s situation, being responsive, and being a strong advocate for my client. Whether the issue is custody related or is financial in nature, I strive to guide my clients through the maze of the family law process and help them carve out a future where they will be able to achieve their goals.

rce and child custody cases; multi-million dollar estates involving business interests, real estate, fraud, concealed and/or dissipated assets, executive benefits, stock options, and trusts; and high-conflict custody cases with allegations of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, parental alienation, mental health complications, and third-party custody and parenting time petitions.
