Family law has been my passion for my entire career and I have limited my practice exclusively to this area of the law since becoming licensed. I assist clients in dissolution, divorce, child custody and child support cases in domestic relations and juvenile courts. My practice is centered in Hamilton, Warren, Clermont and Butler counties in Ohio and Kenton, Boone and Campbell counties in Kentucky. I am trained in Collaborative Law and have experience with many complex family law issues, including high-conflict custody cases, business valuations, and separate property tracing issues.
My clients are extremely important to me. I want to make a personal connection with every client so I can understand their individual needs in the process, legally, emotionally and financially. When you are going through a family law issue, it can often feel as if your world has been turned upside down. There are so many uncertainties during this time and imagining your future can be scary. It is my job to take some of that uncertainty away by using my legal knowledge to provide a calm voice of guidance and support.
Family law issues involve some of the most important things in your life: your children and your livelihood. I understand that who you hire as your attorney is one of the most impactful decisions you will make in this process, and I take my job very seriously. Getting to know my clients allows me to best understand the approach that will be most effective for their case. While I personally believe that collaboration and amicable results are best for families and children, I acknowledge in some cases this is simply not possible. When settlement is not a viable option, I use my litigation and advocacy skills to achieve outcomes for my clients in the courtroom setting. No matter what path we take, it is critical that my clients understand the process and have as much information as possible to aid in making the many decisions that arise in a family law case.
