There are two types of attorneys: Those that became attorneys to make money and those that became attorneys to save the world. I'm in the latter group. Not that I have anything against money; I just enjoy helping people more.
Who do I enjoy helping the most? People like me: smart, working professionals with families who want to find a balance that works for them. Sometimes, that means making the hard decision to bring in household help or end a toxic relationship. I can help with that. Sometimes, that means chasing a dream to run your own public benefit corporation. I can help with that. Sometimes, that means something as simple as talking through your concerns and ideas to pin down the one that will work for you here and now. I can help.
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder School of Law, the “girl next door” of law schools: pretty, collegial, and smart; and a master's degree in Public Administration from the edgier and more urbane Denver Campus. From there, I became a Judge Advocate in the United States Navy, serving in a variety of legal roles from civil legal aid to criminal defense to in-house counsel. I retired from the Navy in 2014. Since then, my primary areas of practice have been family law and internet business law.
I'm licensed to practice law in California, Colorado, and the District of Columbia. I'm certified to practice before the Department of Veterans Affairs, military disability boards, and military courts-martial.

When I'm not practicing law, you will find me playing with my children, sipping wine with my husband, or curled up with my headphones and a Kindle read.
