It is my goal to provide excellent legal service to both Kentucky and Indiana clients in all aspects of family law. I believe this standard of legal service is met through knowledge of and experience with Kentucky and Indiana Family Law, but most importantly through extraordinary client communication and contact. I further believe that, as an attorney, it is incumbent upon us to give back to the community. In that vein, I am a Governor of the Generation Board at Actor’s Theater of Louisville, I regularly volunteer for the Louisville, Kentucky American and Indiana Bar Associations and volunteer for the Kentucky Derby Festival. Due to a great interest in the field, I also, as often as time permits, draft academic articles for state and local legal publications in developing or oft-ignored areas of family law.
