Family law has been the focus of my law practice since I began my work as an attorney.  Choosing an attorney to represent you for your divorce, custody and support, modification or enforcement matter is one of the most important decisions that you will make during those processes.  Your attorney should be someone you trust, who listens to and works with you to set goals and attain them.

I tailor my representation and guidance to each client and their specific needs.  No two clients' goals and situations are the same.  Hearing and listening to my clients are both important.  I care about my clients and their futures beyond their current situation; my clients and I form a partnership during their legal process to help them work through the issues they face. 

At the time that I began practicing law, I chose family law because I enjoy working directly with people and helping them through difficult times.  I strive to provide my clients with personal, one-on-one attention to their legal needs.  I make myself available to my clients as they need so we can address the events that occur  during the changing times in their lives.   

When selecting a family law attorney, it is vital to choose someone with focused experience and skill who can handle the complicated legal issues involved.  It is also important to select an attorney with whom you are comfortable sharing the personal details of your history and who gives your legal matter the attention it deserves.  I have extensive experience litigating complex custody, support and property matters.  I also have experience representing clients in cooperative and "Collaborative" cases where the parties work together to reach a settlement that works for them and their family.  In addition to represent clients individually, in my practice I also serve as a mediator to parties wanting to resolve their divorces, custody and support cases and modifications.  In mediation, I work with both parties to settle their cases.

I have received a rating of AV® PreeminentTM from Martindale-Hubbell which is the highest possible peer review rating for ethical standards and legal ability.

Professional Commitment:

I am involved in organizations in both the legal and greater St. Louis community that work for positive change in family and other legal matters. As a member of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL), I served as the chairperson of the Young Lawyers' Division (2003-2004) and on the Board of Governors (2003-2008). I serve as a volunteer for Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (named a Volunteer Lawyer of the Year) as well as for Legal Advocates for Abused Women. I am a board member of National Council of Jewish Women, an organization that works to improve the quality of life for families. I also serve as a Guardian ad Litem for children in family cases in St. Louis and St. Charles County Family Court.
