Facebook Justia Profile

I practice law in accordance with my values. These include respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every individual, and justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. Consistent with these values I provide innovative legal tools to resolve disputes, including mediation and Collaborative Law.

Divorce is not primarily a legal problem. It is an emotional problem with legal consequences. And in most cases, traditional litigation only serves to exacerbate both the emotional and financial problems, and is a poor way to deal with the legal consequences. There is a role for litigation, however, where a spouse is unable to be honest and respectful, or where there is addiction or domestic violence.
