Providing legal services since 2009

I have been practicing law since 2009 and have represented more than a thousand individuals in criminal cases, divorces, child custody, juvenile court, personal injury, employment discrimination, and I am also a mediator. What sets me apart from other attorneys, besides my proven track record in the courtroom and out of the courtroom, is I see each client as a person who has unique issues. I will listen to what my client has to say and will provide my client with the best legal advice and representation possible. When you hire me as your attorney, you will know what the plan is for your case and you will receive regular updates. I have a unique background that includes being a clinical psychotherapist for 15 years, a mediator, a business owner/ law practice and a public defender for over 8 years. My preference is to meet with potential clients and answer questions versus listing everything on a website. I hope you will consider setting up a consultation so I can answer questions and we can determine if we are a good fit.
