Integrative Attorney, Mediator
I’m not THAT kind of attorney. You know, the kind that promises to be your junkyard dog. That method doesn’t work very well for families. I know from years of going to trial and seeing the fallout, that families can – and should – solve their problems in a way that preserves family relationships, anticipates the future, and creates a safety net for all the “what ifs” that keep you up at night.
I look at life’s twists and turns and wonder, how can I make it better, simpler, less painful, more transformative, and less expensive for everyone? That’s what drives me to do my best work, talk to you about important issues, help you plan for your very best outcomes, and guide you in creating the legacy you intend for your family.
After a career in journalism and publishing, I attended the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, and have been practicing law since 1999, including three years in complex civil litigation and the remainder in family law. I have been trained in and practicing mediation since 2002 and have been a Collaborative Divorce practitioner since 2005. I have written, presented, and taught on the topics of family law, mediation, and collaborative practice since 2003.
