I was drawn to the areas of law that I practice because I'm a naturally compassionate, caring person. As much as I pride myself on my knowledge and professionalism, it’s my emotional support and coaching that has led so many of my clients to refer me to others going through difficult situations.
In order to determine the best course of action for a situation, it’s crucial to first have a complete understanding of it. That’s why I always start by listening intently to your story, your concerns, your goals, and your hopes for the future. From there, I can work with you to start building a plan to get things moving in the right direction.
When I meet with you, I'm not just looking for a solution that will “work.” I'm determined to build one that resolves your concerns now, sets you up for a better future, and caters to your financial needs. To make all that happen, I put my knowledge, experience, and technologies to use the moment you decide to work with me.
I went into law because I wanted to help pull people out of difficult legal situations. Now, 25 years later, my focus remains on providing real solutions and excellent client care.
My husband and partner Bill passed away in March of 2020, but his compassion and commitment to helping others in need continue to be a driving force here at the firm.
Sometimes the answer to a problem is breaking it down, examining its parts, and then reassembling the pieces into an entirely new, ideal form. At other times, a problem can seem like a jumbled mess from the get-go, in which case it’s time to build up a new solution from scratch.
Whether your legal concern feels like a good idea gone awry or simply a flat-out mess, I'm up to the task of helping you do more than just salvage it — I'd like to restructure it from a source of stress into a working, lasting solution.
For example, if you come to me with concerns about your future, I will take the time to learn the details of your circumstances, then help you build the estate plan that makes the most sense for you. If it’s a worry involving custody or division of assets that brings you forward, I’ll help you break down the situation and re-examine the possibilities.
Legal problems are rarely cut-and-dry, but that doesn’t mean they’re unsolvable. I believe that with proper guidance and an innovative approach, just about any legal issue can be resolved.
