    Attorney Profile

    I help people make babies! At CHA Law, we help with reproductive law, including both adoptions and also Assisted Reproductive Technology legal issues (ART Law), such as known sperm donor agreements and surrogacies. We also help with LGBTQ+ legal issues, ranging from prenups (pre-marital property agreements) and wills and estate planning for happy couples, and divorces for not-so-happy couples. And I will help your straight friends get divorced, too! I also help opposite sex couples with divorces and child custody (conservatorship/possession/child support) issues. I represent divorce and custody clients in court if hearings are necessary. But I also try to help clients stay out of court whenever possible, through mediation or the formal collaborative law model.

    I have a great deal of experience representing relatives (such as grandparents and aunts) in custody cases. I also represent relatives and foster parents in CPS case interventions.
