I combine my 18+ years of experience with compassionate advocacy to deliver equitable outcomes for my clients. I listen to my clients to understand what outcomes they hope to achieve, then counsel them on their options given the facts of their case. At all times, I ensure my clients are part of the process.
Most importantly, as a wife and mother, I understand the significance of family and how preserving the family relationship is key to ensuring the well being of the children, parents and other family members. I am devoted to helping my clients achieve a fair result where everyone can walk away from the experience with dignity and mutual respect.
In addition to my knowledge of Family Law, I am well-versed in Landlord/Tenant Law, having worked with housing providers, landlords and tenants. I do this work because I care. Helping individuals and families seek justice is both gratifying and fulfilling. Because of my positive attitude and approach, I am easy to work with.
