I pride myself in being a very compasionate attorney who is capable of tending to all of my clients' Family Law matters. My first legal job was in a general practice firm that became a firm specializing in family law matters. While I know a little bit about a lot of different things, helping people through their family law case is truly my passion. I would love to help you through your divorce as easily as possible, collect the child support or alimony your ex-spouse won't pay you, or modify your court orders to fit your current situation. Give me a call to see how we can work together to smooth this transition, and to save you time, money, and headaches.
I created the Family Law Information class taught at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in partnership with Gwinnett Legal Aid in 2015, and I remain active in teaching the class. I am a frequent speaker at continuing legal education seminars for family law matters. I was appointed by the Supreme Court of Georgia as a mentor for the Transition into Law Practice Program. In 2014, I was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Atlanta Legal Aid Society for my work with the Gwinnett Pro Bono Project and Gwinnett Legal Aid. In 2015, I was selected to participate in the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers (GAWL) Leadership Academy Class. Presently, I am the Vice President of the Gwinnett County Bar Association. In 2017 and 2018, I was recognized by Atlanta Legal Aid for providing more than 50 pro bono hours to the Gwinnett Pro Bono Project, which is part of Atlanta Legal Aid.
I earned my J.D. degree from Tulane University School of Law. I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I majored in Religious Studies. I am the divorced and remarried mother of a blended family. My husband and I have five children ages 17, 15, 14, 12, and 11.
