Iam a client-centered attorney focused on helping families through various life challenges. With over a decade of experience in fast-paced litigation, I am skilled at negotiation and counseling clients through difficult decisions. My background in criminal law gives me a deep understanding of the impact of domestic violence, substance use, and mental illness on families. I am committed to helping you move forward and build your best life.
I grew up in Kentucky where I attended the University of Louisville and specialized in Women’s and Gender Studies. During college I volunteered at a women’s shelter, providing support and advocacy for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. After graduating from Cornell Law School I relocated to New England and have made it my home. I spent many years working as a criminal defense attorney where I helped vulnerable people navigate the legal system. I worked closely with judges, counselors, and law enforcement on the Hillsborough County Adult Drug Court to help individuals with significant substance use disorders rebuild their lives. I have a true appreciation of how the intersection of life’s stressors impacts families. As your family law attorney I will help you through these challenging legal times with compassion.
Estate planning is also an incredibly rewarding part of my practice. When my father passed away after a painfully short battle with brain cancer I was thrust into a new and confusing world of probate administration. My probate attorney guided me through that difficult time and helped me feel confident that I was honoring my father’s wishes. Now I value the opportunity to help clients plan for the future and give their loved ones the tools they need to move forward. As your estate planning and probate attorney I am committed to helping you feel confident about the complex legal decisions you face.
