Many of my clients are faced with trying to raise a child with an overly controlling or dominating co-parent. I have been able to fight for their parental rights and obtain equal time with their kids.
I have represented many parents in being able to move out of state with their children when the other parent fails to meet the child’s needs and create a positive environment.
Dividing and identifying assets can become highly contested. Especially if the spouse controlled all the finances in the marriage. Thorough investigation and analysis of financial documents has led to me to uncover huge sums of income or assets that were hidden or denied by the spouse. My client was able to obtain a just amount of spousal support and division of assets based on the correct numbers.
I represented a client who was falsely accused of raping a minor. The prosecutor claimed they had DNA proof of the crime However, thorough investigation and research revealed that the DNA was not conclusive and did not have the scientific basis that they claimed. After I explained the flaws in the DNA evidence, the jury acquitted him of all charges.
My most memorable case was respresenting a 19 year old client charged with Aggravated Robbery. He always maintained that he was innocent. We had a jury trial, and he was found not guilty of all charges. His record was then sealed and he now has a fresh start.

During the first two years of practicing law, I worked for the Franklin County Public Defender’s Office, where I served more than 2,500 clients who were faced with misdemeanor offenses in various areas. In order to expand my experience and practice areas, I transitioned into private practice representing clients faced with felony and misdemeanor charges as well as family law matters. My practice has shifted over the years to focus on Family Law, including custody of children with unmarried parents, divorce, dissolution, and child support. I often deal with complicated cases with high assets, litigious parents, or immigration issues.
