Experienced, Personalized Legal Representation

Prior to being an attorney, I was a college professor and was inspired to pursue a legal career after the adoption of my two children. I have been practicing for more than 11 years and have been named top attorney in Pasadena by Pasadena Magazine for Family Law and Juvenile Dependency Law from 2010-2014. Additionally, I am a member of both the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the San Gabriel Valley Bar Association.

I understand that the family law and dependency court systems can be complex and intimidating. I encourage my clients to call me any time with their questions or concerns, as I want to make sure they feel comfortable and confident about the legal process. I also tailor my approach to meet individual client needs and offer my legal services at an affordable rate.
