I grew up in Baltimore, MD in a humble family setting. I graduated from Loyola University Maryland (Loyola College at the time) with a major in psychology and minor in French.
In college, I learned of the sentencing disparities between criminal defendants of different races and that the disparities were more pronounced when the victims were of different races. This disturbed me enough to attend law school, but I was also still interested in psychology. I went on to earn both my master's and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology and also completed law school at night.
I graduated the J.D. / Psy.D. program at Widener University in 2007 and completed my post-doctoral clinical psychology hours while living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before moving to Arizona in 2008 to begin my career as an attorney. I listen to and understand my clients and what they are going through better than other attorneys. I believe that is not only due to my extensive education and training in psychology, but also because I have had to deal with difficult situations of my own and understand intimately what it is like to be in crisis and in need.
Initially, I lived in Brewery Gulch in Bisbee, then moved to Naco. In 2014, I moved my office to Sierra Vista. I then moved my family, including my two children, to Sierra Vista. My own children help me keep my custody work focused on the best interests of my clients’ children.
My primary practice areas are criminal defense and family law. Interest in both topics started with my personal experiences as summarized here. The number of criminal and family cases I accepted grew mostly by word-of-mouth after several years in the legal profession.
