Divorce is often the most challenging event in a person’s life. As a collaborative attorney, my goal is to minimize the trauma of divorce for my clients and their children. I am keenly aware of my client’s financial concerns and work diligently to develop comprehensive solutions to meet their needs. When children are involved, I work to protect the children and promote their emotional well-being. Through active listening, I can assist clients in navigating the emotional, financial and legal challenges of the divorce process. My goal is for clients and their children to move forward from the divorce in a positive manner.
I have a strong committment to resolving cases in a cost-effective and amicable fashion. As a Mediator and Collaborative Attorney, I attempt settlement first before spending emotional and financial capital to battle through the Court system. The Court system is oftentimes necessary when clients are faced with headstrong adversaries. Attempting a settlement which focuses on the best interests of the family and win/win scenarios provides long term solutions for parties and so it should be attempted prior to resorting to the Court.
