Strong Legal Advocacy and Compassion When You Need It Most

An Experienced Family Law Attorney by Your Side

I have over two decades of experience in family law. While working for a major Sacramento firm, I often represented high net worth individuals in complex financial and custody matters as well as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Now in my own practice, I put that experience to work for all my clients. Whether your family law issue is legally and factually complex or simple and straightforward, I have the skills and experience your case requires.

But being an effective family law attorney requires more than just legal skill. It also requires compassion and empathy. As a client, you can count on me to listen patiently, communicate effectively and understand what you are going through. As a divorced single parent, I have been in your position, and I can help you through this difficult time.
