Biography

I grew up throughout the Southeastern United States. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated with a B.A. in political science and philosophy. I moved to Minnesota in 1999 to attend the University of Minnesota law school and I decided stay after I graduated. Following graduation, I clerked for a Hennepin County Judge and then took a job with the Stearns County Public Defender's Office. I have been in private practice since 2016.

My practice involves representing people charged with crimes as well as individuals dealing with issues surrounding Orders for Protection and Harassment Restraining Orders - both petitioners and respondents. I am here to help with the collateral consequences as well including, but not limited to, driver's license revocations, motor vehicle forfeiture, employment concerns and more. Please contact me and I am available for a free consultation regarding whatever legal issues you might be facing.

Q. Is it illegal for a parent to have a child Make a false police report against the other parent
A: Depending on the age of the child, it would be difficult to prove that the parent "forced" the child to lie to law enforcement. This would a very fact specific situation and oftentimes there are two very different perspectives to what occurred in a situation. Additionally, private citizens can't "file" charges against each other. So it would be up to law enforcement and a prosecutor to determine that the parent somehow forced, coerced, etc. the child to lie to the police.
Q. Does a DANCO order supersede a divorce decree when it comes to transfer of children.
A: The DANCO would control any contact that father would be able to have with mother. Father will have to continue having a third party handle the pick up and drop off of the children.
Q. I am a victim of an emotionally abusive and cruel wife, and i live in minnesota. She is currently out of the house
A: There isn’t reality a cogent question here. But it seems to me that the place to start is by reaching out to some family law attorneys about pursuing a divorce here.
