I live in Annapolis with my husband, Jim, a Computer Technology specialist.  We have twin sons, one is enlisted in the U.S. Navy (Nuclear propulsion program) and one is a graduate Civil Engineer from the University of Maryland. 


I care about my clients and their lives. In my career, I have worked with thousands of people from many walks of life facing many different challenges. I realize that going through a divorce, caring for children, or fighting for what you think is right can be one of the most challenging, frustrating, and difficult times of your life—on many levels. As a client, I ask you to think hard about your case, to do what you can to improve your situation and your case, because I am willing to work hard for you, to chart a course together with you to achieve your objectives.
