For 19 years I have been helping clients in Western North Carolina resolve difficult issues surrounding divorce. My practice now focuses on helping a select few clients with property issues, including Equitable Distribution, Spousal Support and Alimony, through mediation, settlement negotiation and litigation. I also assist clients with negotiation and preparation of separation agreements and obtaining uncontested divorces.
My philosophy is that clients are best served by an attorney who is upfront and clear from the beginning of representation. I always counsel clients that if their matter can be resolved by the parties, with the assistance of counsel, that is always the best result. But there are times when resolution may only be reached through litigation and in those circumstances I bring 19 years of domestic law experience to the table.
I am also a Certified Family Financial Mediator and helping attorneys and their clients resolve their domestic matters through mediation. I also represent the Guardian Ad Litem Program in McDowell, Rutherford and Transylvania Counties, proudly working with volunteers to help protect abused and neglected children for the past 17 years.
I am a graduate of North Carolina State University and Stetson School of Law. I am licenced to practice law in Florida and North Carolina
