    About my Practice

    I help couples separate and divorce without destroying their families. The courtroom should be the place of last resort when a couple ends their relationship, not the first. This is why I help my clients resolve their marital and family disputes through non-adversarial methods such as collaborative practice, mediation and settlement negotiations. By keeping the focus on my client's true interests and goals, I can help them achieve the best possible outcomes for themselves and their families rather than asking a judge to make those decisions for them. I am certified as a mediator and collaborative lawyer and I am a leader and member in many professional organizations that reflect my interest in dispute resolution and family law issues. I blog about issues related to non-adversarial divorce at Creative Resolutions Blog.
