My focus in representing clients, is to help clients realize the best future for their families. The things that have happened in the past, and that brought you to my office, are important and are important for me to know and understand. However, throughout representation I am going to keep you focused on realizing your best future, and not focusing on the past.
I have personally been involved with most types of family law cases. I am divorced, and I have remarried. My husband and I each have children with prior spouses, and have had to co-parent with them. I know that some people are easier to co-parent with than others. I have been personally involved in Modification of Child Custody and Modification of Child Support Cases. I know what you are going through, and I want to help you through the legal system with as little damage to your wallet, and the best future life for you and your children as possible. Give me the opportunity to talk to you about your options. Let's find the best path forward for your situation.
