  • Family Law (divorce, custody, paternity, child support, protection from abuse and stalking) 100%

I am a family law attorney with over 18 years of legal experience, with the majority in divorce, paternity, custody and domestic law. I believe most cases are more successful if the case is resolved via agreement of the parties rather than trial and will use every tool possible to try to get a successful settlement; however, if that isn't possible I have experience with all levels of adversarial hearings including even the most complex custody disputes and divorce trials. 

Prior to opening my own firm, I worked for the Johnson County District Attorney's Office as a prosecutor and was a police officer for five years prior to that. I also have experience as a pro tem Judge in civil and criminal courts.

Your case will be a priority with me and you will feel confident that I will be able to present your position in the most positive light possible. I firmly believe in paying attention to detail in all of my cases.
