I was not a traditional law student. As a single mom of two, I struggled to balance the demands of law school with the needs of my children. But, I believed that you can achieve any goal through hard work and dedication. My experience as a paralegal and raising two children while attending school gave me a strong foundation upon which to build a law practice. This experience reinforced my belief  that integrity and perseverance are essential to successful representation of my clients.   

I relish the opportunity to help clients through the difficult times in their lives. I have been where they are and I know that it can be overwhelming. I see my clients as people in need not a number or just another file on my desk. Whether it is preparing a simple will, administering a complicated estate, handling a child custody issue, or drafting a deed, I truly care how my service affects them. I strive everyday to remember these values and integrate them into my practice of law.
