Since becoming an attorney in 2005, my life has been impacted by the family laws of this state. My marriage resulted in divorce, and my ex-husband and I share true joint custody of our daughter.
I know, first-hand, the intricacies of these relationships and the effect that divorce can have on a family’s emotional and financial well-being.
So, while my desire to be an attorney grew out of academic lessons and idealistic ideas, my reason for practicing law – family law – is much more basic: I help people get through the “murky details” so that they can get to the “living life” part.
After completing college at the University of Central Arkansas with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, I studied law at the University of Arkansas.
Except for a stint at the Arkansas Securities Department, where I litigated securities fraud issues, and a short but educational foray into banking as a commercial lender, I have practiced family law.
