Attorney Profile
Practice Areas
Legal Resources

         Born and raised in Sonoma County, California, I have always had a passion for problem solving.  As the middle daughter between two brothers, I had plenty of opportunities early on to resolve conflicts and propose compromises.

           My education continues on a perpetual basis so that I can have the most up to date and relevant legal information for my clients.  

          In my legal practice, I apply my diverse global knowledge obtained while traveling and working abroad in  over 15 countries to your unique problems, crafting creative settlements and compromises that are often surprisingly mutually beneficial. Each client is treated with respect and  I work hard to see their dreams effectuated.

     Let me take control of your legal problems so that you can get back to the truly important things in your life. 
You deserve it!

resolve disputes,
not perpetuate them."
