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. For individuals faced with the confusing prospect of probate court and trust administration, I know firsthand how helpful it is to have someone by your side. As your estate planning and probate attorney I am committed to helping you feel confident about the complex legal decisions you face.
