Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I am a 2008 graduate of the Appalachian School of Law. I focus my practice on family law matters including divorce and separation, child custody and support, property settlement and alimony, adoptions, name changes, domestic violence protective orders and parent counsel in DSS matters. I believe problem-solving a primary responsibility of a lawyer. Assisting people through family chaos, ensuring the protection of their rights and property, helping to blend and expand families, and facilitating the transition to newly designed futures, is the heart of family law practice.
