QWhat do you love most about what you do?
A As family law attorneys, we’re helping clients navigate one of the toughest seasons of their lives. While this area of law can be complex and emotional, it’s also one of the most rewarding. We pride ourselves on offering our clients the best, compassionate legal representation available and work tirelessly to meet every need. Our principals have over a century of combined experience and applying creative, innovative legal strategies, have successfully resolved some of the nation’s most notable, complex family law cases. Though we work diligently to reach amicable, non-litigated solutions, our attorneys are highly-skilled litigators with significant trial and appellate experience.

QWhat advice would you offer women just starting out?
A Embrace the value you bring to your work environment and be proactive in your professional growth. Engaging with colleagues and clients can lead to valuable opportunities to learn from others and grow professionally. Seek mentorship and guidance from women in other practice areas and join organizations that will help you foster those connections, possibly opening doors for future leadership opportunities. 

QWhat qualities do you think a successful family law attorney should have?
A Aside from legal acumen, the ability to manage clients’ emotional needs. We emphasize dignity, integrity and compassion for individuals enmeshed in family disputes, prioritizing discretion while helping clients navigate deeply personal conflicts. Dedication to continued learning and keeping current on changes in the law is also essential.
