Biographical Notes:
design element

As a litigator and a mediator, I am proud to bring my experience and training into an arena where solutions can be found and resolutions made with minimal heartache, acrimony and turmoil.

Before entering law school, I earned degrees in Psychology and Political Science because I was interested in the humanity involved in both. While the law itself was created to protect and promote humanity, the process of litigation can often feel uncompassionate. Legal battles can be emotionally, psychically, even physically brutal to the people involved. Mediation is a solid union of the better aspects of the law and the intrinsically cooperative nature of people.
