As your attorney, it's important to know who you're working with.
My background includes 15 consecutive years as a paralegal in family law, litigation and criminal defense. In 2000, after a lengthy decision process, I applied for admission to law school. I was initially accepted and started law school at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock in 2002 and transfered back to the University of Denver in 2004. While in law school, I worked full time in addition to caring for my three children. Usually, it takes 3 years to earn a law degree but working full time required a longer commitment. I graduated in 2007.
I understand many of the hardships, stress and difficulties people face when dealing with the legal system. When children are involved, the process is worse and only adds to an already heartbreaking situation. I work hard to create a cooperative working relationship with all my clients and make every attempt to be available at reasonable times. As my current and past clientele can attest, I am approachable and do not make anyone feel as though they cannot discuss anything required to alleviate concerns. I work hard to live up to the title "Counsel" by providing more than legal advice if necessary to help you through an already difficult process.
At the same time, because I quickly develop rapport with my clients, I am immediately passionate and aggressive and protective of their legal rights. I will do everything permissible to ensure that you, my client, is not "bulldozed" in the legal arena.
If you need and want a down-to-earth, approachable attorney, I will be glad to help you in any practice area in which I am working.
