Family Law Attorney

Why I Practice Family Law

Being a family law attorney always felt like the right path for me. I am the youngest of three children and come from a blended family. The troubles and emotional roller coasters of handling holidays, summer parenting time and joint school events was not easy, but my parents handled it well. 

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.  

As I know firsthand both the struggles and the blessings of being part of a blended family, I am able to use that knowledge to be proactive in my client’s cases, ensuring that their legal rights are protected and their goals are accomplished. I feel very fortunate that I get to help people find a better path forward.

About Me

Although I grew up in Arkansas, and graduated from the William H. Bowen School of Law in 2013, my entire family relocated to the Pacific Northwest.  From the very beginning of my career, I chose to help people with family law issues, whether related to divorce and custody disputes, or estate planning through drafting wills and trusts.  I am licensed to practice in both Oregon and Arkansas.

In a previous life, I spent 10 years helping people as a certified pharmacy technician while I worked my way through college and law school. In my free time you can find me watching the Timbers, exploring a new bar, planning a movie marathon, or trying a new recipe.

If you had to ask me what my top-five favorite films are, in no particular order, I would say: Jaws, The Sure Thing, Top Gun, The Princess Bride, and Con Air. It took a few years, but I think I’ve convinced everyone in the office that John Cusack can’t make a bad film.
