Strong Advocacy And Seasoned Guidance For LGBT Families
Despite tremendous advances for the rights of same-sex couples in recent years, challenges still remain, including issues of child custody. The law has yet to recognize unmarried same-sex parents as equals. In many crucial respects, the law falls short when it comes to families that don’t fit the traditional picture of a mom and dad with biological children. This often leads to roadblocks and, at times, devastating injustices.

As a dedicated advocate for LGBT rights as well as an accomplished family law practitioner, she is well-positioned to guide you through these often uncharted legal waters.
