I have enjoyed a traditional Family Law Practice including an emphasis on collaborative cases in both Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio for decades now. My Mission Statement is that, in my family law cases, I help people through a difficult time with courage, compassion and integrity. "Courage" provides strength in the face of pain or grief. "Compassion" is exercising concern for the sufferings of others. "Integrity" comprises honesty and strong ethical principles. I believe that collaborative cases provide the best opportunity to accomplish my mission for most clients. I litigate effectively when necessary, trying still to stay on mission. The collaborative process offers the potential to get spouses through their divorce with lessened stress, more privacy protection, and increased hope of a working relationship as needed after the divorce process is over.

Thank you for helping us navigate such a difficult time in our lives. I am so glad that we chose a collaborative approach to divorce!
