I have more than thirty years of experience in helping people resolve a broad range of legal issues, including family law, estate planning and probate matters. For 15 of my years in practice, I have served as a part-time judge. Further, I am proud to have received from Martindale-Hubbell, a rating of AV®Preeminent™, the highest possible peer review rating for ethical standards and legal ability.
It is my job and, indeed, my pleasure to get to know you and understand the issues which bring you to my office. Beginning at our very first meeting, I will listen to you, we will together identify your needs and goals, and I will then help and guide you through the legal process. As an experienced trial lawyer, I understand that a trial may be the best choice to resolve your legal issues and I am ready to aggressively represent your interests in court and at trial.
Litigation can be very stressful for clients and their families, so we will discuss methods, other than litigation, by which your case might be resolved. I am a strong believer in what lawyers call “alternative dispute resolution” methods. If I think your case could be resolved collaboratively or through mediation, rather than litigation, we will talk about and evaluate those processes, as well.
I encourage my clients to ask questions about anything that they don’t understand or which causes them concern. I and my staff strive to be available to hear your questions and then promptly deliver answers. It is our goal to provide you with prompt and efficient attention, excellent service, and sound advice based on many years of experience. If you would like to discuss your estate planning needs, probate, or family law matters of any kind, please call on us. We would welcome the opportunity to assist you.
Additionally, I regularly serve as a Court Advocate and Special Prosecuting Attorney in Domestic Violence matters in St. Louis County Family Court.
I also believe it is important to serve our community:
