Honest, straightforward advice

I will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear because you deserve my best advice to help you make the best decisions. 

Compassion for you and your divorce

You are going through one of the most difficult times in your life. I will acknowledge your experiences, respect your emotions, and see your case through your perspective. My compassion personalizes your divorce, tailors my advice to you, and allows me to provide solutions best-suited for your divorce.

I will be your attorney

When you hire me, I will be your attorney. I will not pass you off to another attorney and only show up for major events in your case. I will be with you the entire way.

Keep you informed

I will make sure you know what happens in your case and what to expect with each coming event, to eliminate the stress and worry that comes with the unknown in divorce.

Personal approach to your case

I will take the time to learn about you, your situation, what matters most to you, and carry that with me when advising you and leading you through your divorce.

Respect for your time

You will hear from me within one business day if you need me. You will not be charged for each call, email, or message. I want to hear from you when you need me. I do not want you to be afraid to reach out when you need help.

Respect your money

Divorce is challenging financially. I will not add to the financial stress with unpredictable bills or surprise requests for money. My flat fee pricing provides you with clarity and confidence about the cost of your divorce.

Access to information 24/7

I will make your client files available to you at all times and provide you with access to your case status and information 24/7. You will not have to wait around to find out or wonder what is happening in your case.

Technology and Innovation for you

I will leverage technology and innovation to benefit you and make your experience the best it can be at my law firm. Technology will improve your client experience and reduce the stress and pressure of divorce.

Get your case done

I will work with you and guide you through your divorce with the overall objective to get your case done, with results that meet or exceed your expectations, through a process that respects your dignity and peace of mind. The burden of the legal process is significant at times and you deserve to move on with your life sooner than later.
