I started in criminal law. I was a prosecutor, then, and this might sound like a cliche (but it’s not), I went out on my own and became a defense attorney. I enjoyed it, still accepted a few cases, but something was missing. I realized what that was when my husband and I adopted my first two children. Adoption law was intricate, fascinating, and client intensive in a consultative way I had not experienced in my career to date. I work with people and families to do what’s best for my clients, especially the children. I try to work things out through mediation. On the few occasions that doesn’t work out, the skills I earned during my years in the criminal courts are invaluable, and I’m not afraid to use them when I have to.
At Indigo Family Law, we understand and recognize that we, as people and parents, lead busy lives and time flies. We believe that family is what matters – but we rarely take the time or even want to think about what do we want for our family if we are not around. Even if we have done a will designating who we want to look after our children (and many of us have not), we have not taken the time to develop a legacy for our children. We have not put together a plan designed to pass along our values, our hopes, our dreams for our children. We believe that every child deserves to have a priceless conversation with their parent.
This is not your typical old-timely law firm. We like to buck the system and do things in a different way. How are ya’ll different you might ask.
