My practice is focused on Family Law and Divorce with an emphasis on Real Estate, Business and Community Property divisions. Our office also has extensive background in Domestic Partnerships, Same-Sex Marriages and Probate and Estate Proceedings.

Our goal is to help our clients make wise and informed decisions and avoid the costly legal and emotional consequences of court proceedings. If court proceedings are necessary, we competently and zealously advocate for our clients.

I have been in the practice of law in San Francisco and the Bay Area for over 30 years and I was Certified in the first class of Family Law Specialists and have been recognized as a "Family Law Super Lawyer" in California.
