For over sixteen years, I practiced law in the areas of general litigation, education law, insurance defense, corporate law contract drafting and negotiation, workers’ compensation, employment law and pro bono representation of neglected, abused and deprived children.
After being blessed with 5 children of my own, I retired from the practice of law but have continued to work in and outside of my home. I was a small business owner, I have worked in the travel industryand Iowned and operated a Gymboree Play & Music franchise.
I am now a certified legal mediator, specializing in small business, employment and family matters. I continue to be passionate about the law but my focus now is on reconciling disputes compassionately and avoiding litigation at all costs. I personally know the expense, financial and emotional, that a lawsuit brings with it and mediation should always be attempted, both informally and formally, going to court only as a means of last resort.
