As a first generation American, and one of the first recipients of an academic scholarship through Oliver Scholars in NYC, I have always believed in the importance of education, which is why I have dedicated a significant amount of time the past 10 years working with the media to better inform the public, while volunteering as a guest lecturer at some of the top schools in the DC area, including Georgetown University Law, The George Washington University Law School, and Howard University Law School. As an alumna of Phillips Academy Andover, Georgetown University and the GW Law School, I am committed to excellence while providing clients with legal services at a reasonable price-point. Together with my clients, I strive to develop a legal strategy that works within their budgets tailored to meet their needs regarding either a separation, divorce, custody dispute, prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.  Utilizing alternate dispute resolution methods, I try to minimize the costs of litigating issues such as child support, alimony, custody and/or property division.
