I grew up in Dakota County, where I attended Rosemount public schools. I received my education in the State of California where I practiced for two decades before returning to Minnesota where I enjoy a large extended family.
I have served as a mediator, arbitrator, and Pro Tem Judge. I have extensive trial experience, and have tried more than fifty jury trials. Thoroughly knowledgeable in the family law process, I have handled a number of complex family law matters involving: business valuations, forensic custody evaluations, complex tracing issues concerning assets of mixed character, and cases involving short sales of property and foreclosures. I have the experience necessary to guide my clients through the difficult and sometimes painful process of divorce or the loss of a loved one.
My primary focuses are in family law and drafting wills. I am licensed to practice in both California and Minnesota, and have recently completed extensive CLE in the area of family law in the State of Minnesota.
