As a lawyer serving clients in the Mon Valley, the South Hills and beyond, I represent men and women who are dealing with some of the most stressful times in their lives — the grief and stress that accompanies the ending of a marriage and separation of a family or the strain of living under the burden of significant debt. Increasingly, I have clients who never envisioned that they would be dealing with debt issues or a family separation or divorce, but now they are.
Because of my experience, I bring a unique perspective about the financial aspects of divorce and the family strain that often results from precarious finances.
Accessible, Down to Earth and Caring
My clients are referred to me by fellow attorneys and past clients. They say that I am easy to talk to, down to earth and that I listen. I listen because I care, because I am wholeheartedly committed to my work and to my clients, and because only through listening closely can I know and understand your unique issues and needs that must be addressed and resolved through my diligent legal work.
I Don't Do Cookie-Cutter Solutions
Clients have been told that I know what I am talking about and will always strive to find a way to resolve their legal problems. I do not do cookie-cutter law; rather, I work with real people who are facing unique, real-world problems and need unique, real-world solutions.
My Philosophy on Litigation
I make every effort to reach agreements and avoid litigation, especially in matters of child custody, because of the potential negative impact on any child involved in a child custody dispute. But, I know that some cases cannot be negotiated away. If and when it's time to fight, I'm ready to go.
Confident, Clear and Centered
Judges don't intimidate me. Other lawyers don't intimidate me. Crazy spouses don't intimidate me. My knowledge of the law is grounded in more than 25 years of real-world experience and based on sound legal principles. My results speak for themselves. All of this gives me a confidence that my clients find reassuring.
I have been negotiating solutions to complicated legal issues for many years. My ability to listen and see the other side's points of view allows me to meet them where they are and effectively build a bridge to resolve cases in a matter that protects and enforces clients' best interests. But, I know when to hold them and when to fold them. When negotiation isn't what's necessary, I am well-prepared to litigate.
Use Me As a Resource
