There have been three life experiences that have dramatically impacted the way that I practice law.
The first experience would be my role as a single mother. Although being a single mother would not have been the choice I would have made voluntarily, a tragedy made single motherhood a reality. Through family support and the love of friends, I was able to put myself through college and law school. I personally experienced how hard it is for a single parent to juggle the role as provider and mother. I have felt many of the same emotions that my clients experience in their cases.
The second experience would be my role as a wife and mother of two. I experience the daily struggle of trying to find balance in my roles as wife and mother while also working outside the home full time. I understand how difficult life can be.
The third experience would be my involvement with church and my spiritual journey in life. I believe that God put me on earth to use my skills and talents as an attorney in order to be able to bless other people. I have been blessed in return. On thing that I have benefited from is my involvement as a leader with a Divorce Care For Kids program. It played a major role in the way that I look at family law disputes. I have seen the impact that a broken family has on the emotions of children. I have seen the hurt, rejection and resentment that the kids often feel.
I have practiced law since 1998 and feel it is my obligation to work each day to focus my abilities on finding solutions for broken families. The daily choices that I make in handling my cases reflect the care and compassion that I feel for my clients.
My office was designed with family in mind. You will not find a stuffy, formal attorney office. I have created an office environment with comfort in mind. My clients are welcome to bring their children to my office. There is a play room here filled with toys. I have created this for your children so that they can be here with you, but still allow us to have a private meeting to discuss your case.
I provide family law services with a warm and personal touch. I know the importance of individual attention to your case.
