My goal is to provide thoughtful, wise and skilled counsel as you make your family transitions. Change often brings conflict. Most people find conflict uncomfortable. Response to conflict is the most critical factor in managing how uncomfortable it becomes. Traditional litigation processes tend to feed and escalate conflict so I choose to focus my practice on alternatives to litigation. Using Collaborative Law, mediation, conflict coaching and direct negotiation, I will support your goal for a dignified and durable agreement.

Collaborative Law Process is a private alternative to traditional litigation. It provides a means for participants to achieve the desired result of a dissolution or quasi-marital split with an exchange of information to enable an informed decision between the parties for what makes the most sense for their circumstances. It gives both parties a process to determine their own future and the well-being of their children with privacy, integrity and dignity. The Collaborative Process is a win-win for all concerned.

I have been a lawyer for over twenty years. From January 2011 to April 2013, I served as a Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner. I presided over family law, probate/estate, guardianship, mental illness, juvenile court, landlord tenant, mortgage foreclosure, and other matters. While on the bench, I saw many family law cases which would have been more effectively and humanly handled with a well-trained collaborative team. I chose to leave the bench and to return to private practice. My practice focuses on family law--primarily divorce, legal separation, and child custody. My prior experience as a social worker and my mediation skills are essential to helping others to handle stress and to focus on long-term goals. Serving on the bench has sharpened my ability to present an objective perspective and to assist a potential client in evaluating alternatives.
