Work Philosophy

I opened my practice to serve individuals, families, and small businesses seeking legal assistance with matters large and small. Developing long lasting relationships with clients and understanding their individual needs is central to my personal and work philosophy, and is essential in order to customize a strategy in order to accomplish their goals.

What motivates me is achieving excellent outcomes for a client faced with a challenging situation, seeing the relief on a couple’s face when they know their loved ones will be taken care of with their estate plan, and at the end of a case when my client tells me it wasn’t as bad as they thought it would be. That is what a lawyer should provide to her clients.

When I’m not practicing law you can find me exploring the local hiking trails with my family and learning about life from my amazing son.
