With appropriate professional support, most individuals experiencing a family conflict or transition can successfully negotiate workable solutions without the involvement of the courts. I embrace a participatory model of family law, and take pride in the fact that I help clients maintain control over their own lives by crafting settlements that meet their unique needs. I work hard to help my clients minimize inter-personal conflict, which can help to achieve cost-effective outcomes.
