I'm glad you're here.

We occupy a time in history where more light than ever is being shed on the inequities faced by our communities. Nowhere is this inequity felt more strongly than in our modern legal system, wherein our beloved family, friends, peers, and community members regularly fall through the cracks. Change is necessary if we are to create a system that serves everyone.

I believe that change is possible, and it starts with us. 

By centering the person at the core of my work, I strive to offer skilled, empathetic care to all of my clients and the people they hold dear. Together, we'll explore all the possibilities and find a solution that meets your needs. 

Your legal journey may be complex, but you don't have to take it alone. I look forward to connecting, and learning more about how I can support you - on your terms, at your pace, and with your best interest at heart.
