Consider Your Options As You Marry, Separate, or Divorce!


B.S.E.E., J.D.

My Expert Service

The institution of marriage is held together by mutual obligations to a contract. Believing your partner will honor a committment to marriage is based on a leap of faith. Anyone planning to marry, separate, or divorce should make sure they understand their underlying obligations and options before and after marriage which may make all the difference in living a happy life either together or apart. I have experience litigating family matters requiring the utmost discretion and also matters involving children and pets. I have successfully handled various contested child custody cases that involved unmarried couples and married couples seeking to divorce. Further, I have counseled widows, unmarried persons with children whose other parent serves in the military, and military spouses in family law matters. I have experience inventorying personal marital property. I have counseled individuals contemplating divorce to advise on alternatives to staying married. I obtained my Juris Doctor degree upon graduating from Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law in 2001. Further, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, with honors.
