What do you do?
I represent clients in all aspects of family law, ranging from mediation to litigation. I can assist with divorce, legal separation, nullity, custody, child support, spousal support, etc.
What are your strengths?
One of my greatest strengths is my work ethic. Growing up in Metro Detroit I learned the value of hard work, and I have continued to apply that work ethic in my practice of law. I will research all aspects of an issue to make sure I am fully informed and confident in the advice I give clients.
My second greatest strength is my attention to detail. Whether it be sending a simple email or writing a complex brief, I continuously make sure that everything is as close to perfect as possible. I know that the writing I send to opposing counsel or submit to the court is the first impression I am making on my clients’ behalf and I want to make it known that I have done the work necessary to represent you to my best abilities.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about working towards my clients’ goals. I want to make my clients happy, and by establishing their goals at the initial meeting I can develop a strategy to accomplish each goal my client has set.

Activities Outside of Work:
When not in the office I enjoy working out, spending time with my dogs, and playing golf. At the end of the day it does not matter what I am doing as long as I am outside enjoying Southern California.
