I practice family law exclusively, focusing on dissolution, child custody, child support, parenting time, property division, alimony, and other related issues. I provide compassionate representation through alternative dispute resolution methods, specifically, the collaborative process. This process assists spouses through an incredibly difficult time while limiting negative discourse and providing an honest forum to discuss financial and parenting goals with integrity and respect. While I have extensive trial experience and enjoy advocating for my clients in the courtroom, I truly believe that the collaborative process is a superior alternative to litigation for many families. In addition to the Academy of Northern Kentucky Collaborative Professionals, I am also a member of the Cincinnati Academy of Collaborative Professionals, the Kentucky Bar Association, the Northern Kentucky Bar Association, the Ohio State Bar Association, and the Cincinnati Bar Association. I currently serve as the President of the Junior Board of the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky and I sit on the Board of Trustees of the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky.

My ex-wife and I completed our collaborative divorce last year. It was in Kenton County. The process worked very well. Most importantly, our children were not adversely affected by the divorce process. We were able to cooperate with regard to them throughout the process. Because of the Collaborative Process, we did not have to experience the months-long wait for court hearings that other couples experience. We were able to control the process, and work through our divorce more efficiently than in litigation.

Preparing for and attending a collaborative meeting in a divorce is much easier than preparing for and attending a court hearing.

Divorce is always challenging, but the Collaborative Process helped reduce the level of tension and anxiety for us, especially compared to other people I have known that did not do collaborative. We learned a process of communication that we still use to resolve issues with our children.
