550 Main Street, Suite B1B, Placerville, CA 95667-5634

I provide traditional family law services as a counselor and litigator in the areas of dissolution of marriage, child custody and visitation, characterization and division of marital property, child and spousal support, and the allocation and division of retirement accounts.

I am also available to serve as a private judge pro tempore, arbitrator, or mediator in contested family law proceedings, including cases in which the parties and counsel want to remove the litigation from a traditional courtroom environment in order to resolve the issues in a less public venue, and/or want to be afforded the flexibility to set hearings, mandatory settlement conferences, and trial dates more expeditiously than the dates that are currently available to them through the court.
