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
