I have years of civil litigation experience including complex litigation, discovery,
depositions, use of expert witnesses and trial, having practiced almost exclusively
as a medical malpractice defense attorney right out of law school. This experience
has afforded me a general civil litigation skill-set and foundational understanding
of the law that is invaluable with respect to my other practice areas such as divorce
and family law.
In addition to being an attorney, I am a mom and a professor of law. While I consider
my three daughters to be my greatest accomplishments, I am also very proud of my
students. Teaching law, and raising children, means that I am always learning and
able to approach family law matters involving children with a special sensitivity.
I came to the practice of law a little bit later in life, after having other jobs
(including being a medic for 10 years) which is how I know that law is absolutely
the right occupation for me. I have met many burned-out attorneys who hate what
they do. I love my work. I feel passionate about the practice of law and I take
my responsibility to my clients personally.
In my career, I have had the unique opportunity to practice in many areas of law,
as well as exposure to interesting legal problems and the privilege of solving them
for clients from all walks of life. I hope that you never need a lawyer, but if the
time comes when you do please give me a call.
