Competence, Commitment and Communication.

I will give my personal attention to your needs and concerns.
No matter what your legal problem or concern is, whether simple or complex,

I will listen to you and talk with you to reach the best solution we can.

A licensed practicing attorney since 1988.
Actively practicing law in Prescott, AZ since 1990.
Admitted to practice law in Arizona, Colorado, and New York, as well as Federal
District Courts for the District Court of Arizona and Southern District of New York.

My primary areas of practice are Divorce/Family law, Estate Planning and Probate:

? Divorce (Dissolution of Marriage)                   ? Wills and Trusts
? Legal Separation                                         ? General Powers of Attorney
? Property and Debt Division                           ? Healthcare Powers of Attorney
? Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)                   ? Beneficiary Deeds
? Child Custody and Visitation                        ? Nonprobate Transfer Documents
? Child Support                                              ? Probate Actions
? Paternity                                                    ? Estate & Trust Administration
? Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements              


I continue to provide all Estate Planning, Trust & Probate services.

However, I am NOT taking any new contested Divorce/Family Law cases.
I will still represent people in uncontested (agreed) Family Law actions, and
provide consultations and prepare documents for those representing themselves.
Thank you.

you and your unique situation. My detail-oriented approach, personal attention,
and commitment to my clients distinguishes me from most lawyers.
