Practice State



Today, family law issues arise in a variety of legal contexts, from elder law and estate planning to children in need of care and juvenile issues. If you or a member of your family is involved in a legal dispute, you have made the right decision to seek an attorney to assist you in navigating the legal process. Thank you for considering the services of my firm for your legal needs. My practice is dedicated to legal advocacy for families and children. Negotiation and litigation of family law issues can be an emotionally and financially draining experience for families. The goal of my practice is to facilitate families’ healthy movement through the legal process.
