Since 1994, my practice has included all aspects of domestic relations litigation, including child custody and visitation, support issues, property division and divorce as well as appeals of domestic cases to the Court of Appeals. These cases range from simple unconetestd divorces to contested divisions of complex personal marital estates, including valuations and divisons of business assets.
In addition, I do adoption work and adult guardianship and conservatorship cases. I have been qualified by the Virginia Supreme Court as a guardian ad litem for both children and incapacitated adults. I have previously represented injured plaintiffs in personal injury and medical malpractice matters as well as individuals charged with traffic cases. I practice in all courts in Loudoun County, and on occasion, in surrounding jurisdictions.
From 2013 - 2016 I was invited to be a faculty member for a three year term for the Virginia State Bar’s Harry L. Carrico Professionalism Class, the Virginia Supreme Court’s mandatory course on Professionalism and the Virginia Rules of Professional Conduct.
I am actively involved in state and local bar associations. I am a Past President of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association (2010-2011) and past Board Member of the state VWAA Board (2006-2014) as well as a co-founder, Treasurer and President of the local Loudoun Chapter of the VWAA.

I have worked to ensure equal access to legal services by being a member of the Special Committee on Lawyer Referral of the Virginia State Bar Association. The lawyer referral is a service designed to assist the public in obtaining referrals for local attorneys.
I have resided in western Loudoun since 1998 with my family and truly enjoy being a member of the Loudoun legal community.
