I represent clients in a variety of legal areas.  I regularly represent clients all over the Richmond area and I often travel as far east as Virginia Beach, as far north as Spotsylvania, as far west as Charlottesville and as far South as Dinwiddie.  I assist clients with obtaining and defending protective orders, uncontested and contested divorce, spousal support, child custody, visitation and support, pre-nuptial agreements, property settlement agreements, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, criminal defense, business formation and dissolution and general civil litigation.

Separation and divorce are emotionally significant events.  I understand the roller coaster of emotions that accompany this time in your life.  I can help you navigate the turbulent storms of separation, divorce and custody.  I recognize that children often suffer in a divorce and I am sensitive to the extraordinary challenges of families with children. 

Consumer bankruptcy practice is another significant part of my law practice.  I instruct other attorneys on how to prepare their family law cases when bankruptcy looms on the horizon.  I represent debtors in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.  My background in practicing family law brings a unique perspective to my bankruptcy cases as they often end up crossing paths.  I know that choosing to file bankruptcy is an important and critical decision and I carefully review the entire bankruptcy process with my clients.  In many cases I can help you stop a garnishment, stop a foreclosure, and stop a repossession.

I am raising a family of my own and am actively involved in our community.  I volunteer with Safe Harbor, the USO and Fort Lee’s 16th Ordnance Battalion.  I speak to survivors of domestic and sexual assault and active duty military about the epidemic of worldwide human trafficking and its impact in Virginia and abroad.  I also work with God’s Pit Crew; a first response organization that sends rescue and rebuilding efforts worldwide.
