With some of the big law firms, you might feel as though you’re working for the attorney instead of the other way around. I guarantee to give you the focus and attention you need and deserve in your time of need.
I started my career in Ohio. After completing a degree in Social Work, and then law school, I spent nine years working in public-interest agencies where I represented persons who couldn’t obtain an attorney on their own. In 1992 I moved to Knoxville, and spent the next seven years as litigation director for what was then known as Knoxville Legal Aid Society. In 1999 I left public service work to start my own practice. I became a Rule 31 listed mediator, and in 2012 I was accepted as a Fellow in the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys, a nationwide organization dedicated to family creation. Since entering private practice I have represented over 1,000 individual clients in adoptions, family law matters, conservatorships, juvenile court cases, and other civil matters.
With more than 36 years of experience, I’m well-prepared to represent you as an attorney or mediator for even the most difficult situations.
