My practice is devoted exclusively to family law. I know how emotional litigation and negotiations can be. I'll help you make good choices especially when the process is taxing. I'm a resourceful attorney. I consider all available legal avenues, including mediation and arbitration. So you get a fair ruling at the lowest cost. I attended the University of Washington, graduating in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. Soon thereafter, I attended California Western School of Law in San Diego, CA and graduated in 1996 with my J.D. I was admitted to the Washington State Bar, as well as the California State Bar, in December of 1996. After practicing law in California, I moved back to Washington State in 2000 to join a Family Law firm. I have owned my own Family Law practice since 2004. I pride myself on my ability to explain complex legal issues to my clients. In addition, I strive to make the legal process less intimidating and to work very closely with each and every client.
