About Me


I always strive to tailor my work and my style to help each client’s own unique and specific needs. It is important to me that my clients feel heard and taken care of at all times. Family is everything to me and so I get how much trust my clients put into me and my work.

I began my legal career as a file clerk at a small family law firm in Southern California. After graduating from law school, I joined a large prestigious law firm in San Francisco where I learned to litigate and advocate for large companies. Following many years of practicing civil litigation, I returned to family law and to my passion for helping families during some of the most deeply personal and challenging periods of their lives.

I am comfortable using my years of litigation experience whenever necessary, but I am also well versed in all forms of alternative dispute resolution and strive to avoid court whenever feasible. Together with my clients, we determine what is best for your situation, but remain flexible as life and our approach to your case will inevitably change.

I am a mother to two small children and they are my everything. I love to bake with my three year old, play peek-a-boo with my baby, and take family walks to get coffee and bagels every Sunday morning with our rescue poodle-mix Pepperoni.
