Our Story


Established in 2011.

Back Ground:
The seed for this firm was planted by the observant words of my eighty-two year old grandma "you auda be a lawyer" ("sic").
Past Studies:
I studied History and Political Science at the University of Michigan and graduated with honors in 2002. Later, I attended Southwestern Law School and graduated in 2008 (focus: Property Law).
While attending Southwestern Law School, I clerked at the United States District Court-Central District; District's Attorney's Office at the Eastlake Juvenile Court; I taught children in the Street Law Clinic; and I was Co-President of BLSA.
In or around 2011, after practicing law at a firm, it became clear to me that my desire to practice law--while being humane--required that I open my own practice.  Over the years, our firm has grown and we now provide services in the following areas:
Divorce and Family Law;
Employment Law;
Property Law (including: Evictions);
Civil Litigation; AND
Dependency Law.


We Look Forward to Serving You!

Our paralegal services department provides document preparation services at a reasonable costs to clients.  Where clients can choose to represent themselves.  Its our way of not just working for clients but WITH them! In sum, we provide quality legal services for reasonable prices.
