Representing and Appearing in Court Hundreds of Times
practice has included advising and representing literally hundreds of
individuals, families and children who have had challenging legal
problems, such as dissolution (divorce), child custody and visitation, property division,
support, guardianships, adoptions, pre and post marital agreements and
juvenile matters. I am known for taking the time to help you articulate
your goals, needs and concerns. This almost always results in a better,
less costly and more expeditious resolution. Whether you are seeking advice for
divorce, child related issues, support, guardianships or juvenile
matters or want to pursue mediation, special master, or arbitration. I
am dedicated to helping you find a prompt, cost-effective and equitable
solution to your family law concern.

appointed, I also serve as a Special Master and Mediator as well as an
Arbitrator in family law related matters.
