While my main practice is family law, I specialize in alternative dispute resolution, equitable distribution, child custody, child and spousal support, abuse and domestic relations. After achieving a certificate in dispute resolution from the renowned Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University, I called upon that legal training and focused my practice on building effective solutions that meet my clients’ needs during a divorce or other family law matter.
Before moving to the Philadelphia area, I practiced family law at a firm in Pittsburgh and previously served as a law clerk to The Honorable William F. Ward in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, Family Division. During my time there, assisted with cases related to divorce, child custody, protection from abuse, juvenile delinquency, and other family law matters.
After earning my law degree from Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California, I began my legal career in Los Angeles. While serving as editor of the Los Angeles Public Interest Law Journal, I passionately represented homeless and indigent clients.
I'm an active member of the Family Law Section of the Pennsylvania Bar Association. I holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and government from Ohio State University.
