Our Team: Attorneys And Staff

We have assembled a team of dedicated and experienced family law attorneys and assistants to help you achieve your better future.

I chose to be a family law attorney because the first time I saw how much happier someone could be at the end of a divorce, I knew I was doing the right thing.  It changed my entire perspective on what divorce actually means for someone.  It means a new direction, a new hope, a new life.  It means being able to find happiness again.
Being a family law attorney always felt like the right path for me. I have always had an ability to connect with people and understand their perspective. This has been a great strength in helping people through divorce and custody disputes. I do everything I can to make sure people make the best decisions for their family and future.

I have many years of experience helping people through family law cases, including divorces and custody disputes.  I have always been drawn to family law, because I have a passion for helping people through difficult situations. Divorces and custody battles can feel overwhelming and confusing for people going through them, which is why I do everything possible to help people find the solutions they need and give them peace of mind.

I started my career clerking for the family law court in Clackamas County.  I joined the Sherwood Family Law team and have found that helping people through divorces, results in very positive things for our clients by the end of the divorce process.  It’s always uplifting to help someone through a difficult time, and to see them experience happiness at the end of it.

After graduating from law school in California, I started my legal career working as a prosecutor in the Office of the Attorney General of Guam, Prosecution Division, Family Violence Unit. I later pursued an opportunity to practice family law at a prestigious family law firm in Hagatna, Guam, helping people with divorce and custody issues.  I have since relocated to Oregon with my family, and look forward to helping people in the local community.  

One of the reasons that I have chosen to work at a family law firm, is that I have a passion for helping people. I want to make what could be a difficult process as straight forward as possible. I enjoy being part of real solutions for all of the people we help.  When you call the office, you will almost certainly speak with me. I’ll make sure that we do everything possible to answer any questions you have. You’ll likely be working with me as things progress forward, so don’t hesitate to introduce yourself when you call.

I am drawn to family law because I can see how it truly helps people navigate an uncertain path and find their way to the happiness they have been in search of. Through compassion and empathy, it is my goal to help guide and support our clients through this challenging time. It is very rewarding to be a part of someone’s journey towards a better future. I am one of the first points of contact at our firm with new clients, and I strive to help them understand what is in front of them, how their lives can be improved and how Sherwood Family Law can help.

As the firm’s legal receptionists, we know how important it is to make sure all of our client’s have a peaceful and compassionate experience when calling our office. We feel very fortunate to be there to help our client’s find a path to a better future!
