I know that legal issues whether in the context of Family Law or Mediation can sometimes be overwhelming. I am dedicated to providing you help in language that you can understand using a variety of creative tools. If you don't feel like you understand your options or the information I have shared with you, just ask, and I will work to find a learning tool that works for you.
The first step is to work with you on your Family Law or Mediation matter and come up with a plan to get the results you need. Through my understanding of the law and your understanding of the circumstances, we will craft a path together that works for you.
Let's figure out the next step in your Family Law or Mediation matter. I believe that you should put just as much time and effort into your separation as you did any other important step you have chosen to take during your relationship. Remember that it takes time and patience to transition to your new family structure and everyone navigates this process at their own pace.
