How we came together

We regularly give back to the community doing pro-bono work mediating family custody issues for low income families at the Children’s Law Center. Each of us brings different perspectives and skills to bear on the process. We found our personal styles to be complementary such that we help most families resolve their differences outside the traditional legal process.  Working together, we offer our clients a “valued added”, dual disciplinary approach to your divorce or custody matter that is both less stressful and more economical.
