Aventura Family Law Attorney

Meet Your Attorney

Usually, on this page you would see a long, resume-like list of educational and professional accomplishments, but instead, I want you to know who I am as a person. Hiring an attorney during a divorce or any other family law related proceeding is like inviting a stranger into your home, when your family is most vulnerable. Hopefully, by reading a little bit about me, I will no longer be a stranger to you (if you are interested in reading my resume you can find it here).

Being a child of a divorce, I had to split my high school time between Seattle, Washington and Chicago, Illinois. During this time I worked as a teacher’s assistant in a day care center, a Best Buy cashier, and a real estate firm receptionist. I never shied away from hard work, always wanted to stay busy and expose myself to different experiences.

After high school, I attended Loyola University Chicago, where I majored in Psychology and minored in Communication. During my studies, I became fascinated by how a person’s decision-making process is driven by his/her emotions. In exploring possible career options, I worked for a Chicago based law firm of Daley, DeBofsky, and Bryant, where I realized that a good attorney is not just a legal professional, but also a counselor to his/her clients. My husband urged me to take the LSAT and give law school a try. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, where I would get to combine my passion for psychology and love of the law.

To be closer to my family, my husband and I relocated to South Florida where I attended Nova Southeastern University College of Law. I always knew that I wanted to practice family law because my parents’ divorce has left a negative impression of the legal process, which I strive to change. As a law student I participated in the Children and Families Law Clinic where I represented low-income individuals in a variety of family law matters. As a result of the clinical experience I had the opportunity to litigate in court before receiving my bar license. I have also had a coveted opportunity to do an internship for a well-respected, long-standing family law Judge Honorable Renee Goldenberg.

After I graduated with honors (magna cum laude) and at the top 10% of my class, I worked as an associate attorney for a Fort lauderdale, civil litigation law firm. At this firm I represented corporations like Citizens Insurance, Volkswagen, and Mercedes and acquired valuable courtroom experience.

I had an opportunity to fully immerse myself into the family law when I worked for an excellent Broward family law firm, which has been in business for over 30 years. During my several years as the associate attorney for the firm, I helped numerous clients navigate complex and emotionally charged divorces, paternity actions, modifications, and other legal proceedings.

During my free time, I love volunteering at my local animal shelter, hanging out on the couch, and watching movies with my husband and rescue dog Lola.

My background in psychology and a modern approach to the practice of law gives me a unique edge to help my clients come up with innovative, outside of the box solutions, while also being cost effective. I do not just look at each case from a legal perspective, but instead I use a global approach, taking into account economical, psychological, and moral aspects. My clients call me their confidant, and they always know that I have their best interests in mind.

I would love to chat with you to see how I can help your case and make your life easier.
