About ME

I have mediated over 600 disputes over the past 13 years. I spent a decade serving as a Guardian ad Litem in the 6th and 22nd Judicial Districts. I began looking for a way to serve families and children in a pro-active, empathetic, and efficient manner through the court system, which led me to collaborative law. I've seen what protracted, litigated divorce does to children, and I hope to be a part of shifting that paradigm to a more reasonable, sensible outcome.
