“There are a number of reasons I choose to practice family law. At the top of the list is the opportunity it gives me to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Family law is unique in that it allows attorneys to work very closely with clients during a time in their life where they feel very little control over matters that are very near and dear to their heart. I enjoy practicing in an area of law that allows me to guide and assist clients through such a trying time in a way that makes them feel empowered again. I have a real passion for helping clients achieve their goals because it effects the most important aspects of their lives. I also care deeply about kids and sincerely want to make sure children’s best interests are at the forefront of cases involving children.”
