Many people attend law school with hopes of helping people and giving back to the community. Fortunately for me, I have the opportunity to do that on a daily basis. Being a family law attorney allows me to connect with individuals on a personal level and help impact their lives for the better.
I have always been a people person, and practicing family law allows me to use this strength while doing something I find truly rewarding. I believe our clients deserve to feel a sense of comfort and sincerity from their attorney. I pride myself in building strong relationships, while being a problem solver for my clients and providing legal guidance that specifically addresses their individual circumstances.
I have friends, family members and colleagues who were impacted personally by divorce, subsequent custody battles and financial challenges. For my colleagues, these experiences served as a catalyst and inspiration for becoming a family law attorney. Although my experience is different, it also serves as a daily source of inspiration in my practice I am lucky that I had and continue to have a strong and positive relationship with my parents, who are still married to each other after many years together. Unfortunately, not all marriages last, and issues like divorce and child custody can be emotionally draining. However, it does not have to define the rest of your life. When working with clients, my goal is to help them through these difficult situations so they may devote their time and energy to paving the way for a peaceful life and successful future.
