How I Serve Clients
I’m committed to our community, having lived in Clark County and worked in Southern Indiana for more than 35 years. Prior to attending law school, I worked in real estate and helped my husband start a business that is still going strong after more than thirty years. I worked at a local bank in both the loan and trust departments. I understand the needs of individuals and business owners in our community, and strive to develop solutions to their matters that can be achieved expeditiously.
When clients are experiencing a difficult matter, such as a divorce, custody dispute, or a disability matter, I am by their side to provide the emotional support needed. When business owners need help with contracts or other matters, as a business owner myself, I can appreciate the objectives that they seek.
No legal matter is “small” for the client experiencing the problem. Nor is there any “small” legal matter for me. I give every client the attention and detail for their matter as if it were my own matter, and recognize how the resolution of their legal matter may affect them, their family, and the community.
