Divorce Property Division
Divorce cases involving substantial assets require specialized knowledge. I am skilled at identifying, valuing and proposing division of assets and debts, including real estate, securities, business interests, retirement funds, pension plans, tax shelters, overseas accounts, stock options, trusts and other actual or potential sources of wealth.
Negotiation and Litigation
Resolving matrimonial disputes requires patient and persistent negotiation. To be most effective, negotiation must be balanced by the skills and resources to litigate, as well as an understanding that litigation should be avoided when possible. I also have experience negotiating and drafting pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements to provide clients with reliable, long-term financial security.

Collaborative Family Law

Collaborative Family Law
The Collaborative process allows all parties involved to engage and shape the settlement of their case while benefiting from my representation. The Collaborative divorce better addresses the emotional as well as the legal aspects of the process. Through cooperation, understanding, and mutual respect I am able to help clients discover the best formula to ending their marriage amicably and efficiently.


Through mediation, whether post-decree or pre-decree, the mediator facilitates and helps the parties settle all legal disputes by finding points of harmony and allowing those in conflict agree on a fair result. The parties are always in control of the outcome. I encourage parties in mediation to speak openly about their interests and concerns in order to promote better communication and understanding, and decrease future conflict.


I am dedicated to assisting my clients through the important journeys of adoption and assisted reproduction. Whether you are single or married, gay or straight, a step-parent, a surrogate, intended parent, or a child of adoption, I will help you understand the laws in Ohio and guide you through your journey. I am passionately committed to family creation, education, and advocacy and dedicated to assisting everyone create their forever family.
