Attorney and Mediator
Comments on Profession
I have been an attorney for 37 years and have a great deal of experience with the issues involved in family law matters, specifically including issues relating to domestic abuse and child physical and sexual abuse issues.
Juris Doctor Degree, With Distinction, from the University of Iowa College of Law, in 1981.
Areas of Training
I received my training in Mediation through the Drake University College of Law.
I have been an attorney for 37 years. I have handled divorce cases, criminal cases, juvenile court delinquency and CINA cases, and civil domestic abuse cases which involved allegations of physical and sexual abuse. The divorce cases have had financial issues ranging from no significant assets to family farms, requests for alimony, business ownership, and complicated retirement plans. All of this gives me some insight into how to help people have open discussions of traditional and creative ways to reach a resolution of this difficult and stressful time in their lives.
