Contact Me:


I am a family law attorney handling all aspects of family law, including divorce, separation, paternity cases, child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, division of assets and debts. I am a solo attorney located in West Covina, CA, and I appear in several courts throughout Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County, and Orange County.

My practice also involves post-judgment modifications to custody orders, support orders, move away cases, representing parties living in different states and/or moving to different states, and navigating custody and visitation orders in difficult cases. I also serve as Minor's Counsel so my focus on every case, whether representing mother or father, is the best interests of the child. I strive to resolve divorce and paternity cases amicably with stipulated settlements to avoid litigation and trial. If settlements are not possible, I am prepared to take a case all the way to trial.
