I will work closely with you and provide you with individualized attention in my aim to resolve your legal challenges in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Handling Gwinnett County Divorce and Family Law Matters with Compassion and Dedication

Divorce can be hard.  No two divorce cases are the same as each case presents its own unique issues and circumstances.  One of my main goals is to help you feel comfortable and understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case.

I want to resolve cases in a manner that fits each of my client's needs.  I will look to reduce your expenses by exploring settlement possibilities and considering and pursuing alternatives to trial, when possible, by attempting to find creative solutions to cases through mediation or settlement negotiations.

In addition to being a Georgia family law attorney and divorce lawyer, I am also certified by the State of Georgia as a divorce and family law mediator.  As a result of my experience in divorce and family law mediation I am often able to settle your Georgia divorce or family law in mediation or through settlement negotiations without having to go to court.

Although the majority of divorce and family law cases in Gwinnett County reach a resolution prior to a final trial, there are times when you must take your case to trial if that is the best way to achieve your goals.  When your situation requires a hearing or a trial then be assured that I am ready to take your case to court and that I always strive to get you the best outcome possible.
