Summary

I got tired of big law firms, that put profits before people. Finding peace of mind for your domestic issues shouldn't cost an arm and a leg. That's why I opened Springfield Family Law, where we put our clients first.

Divorce and custody actions are some of the most stressful life events an individual can experience. Unlike most attorneys who studied politics in school, I wanted to have a thorough understanding of how family conflict and tension can affect you and your children. I received my Bachelor's degree from Drury University, and Master's degree from Valparaiso University, in Psychology, along with my J.D. from Valparaiso Law School, to assist me in my practice of Family Law.
