Wendy firmly believes that family law is ultimately about love. That’s what her grandfather always said about his insurance business; that people buy insurance because they care about their family members. Her clients are often trying to find the best resolutions for their family members during times of personal turmoil. She often assists clients navigating divorce and child custody issues and she understands the complex monetary matters and emotional fragility of the people involved. Her goal is to help her clients find the hard won peace of mind she was able to achieve after her own divorce several years ago.

Wendy began her career working in the areas of estate planning, life insurance, complex trusts and wealth management. Now she focuses on family law. In addition to traditional divorce matters, she also practices in paternity court and juvenile court handling cases involving children in need of services with the Department of Child Services. She is a trained guardian ad litem, collaborative practitioner and prides herself on providing practical advice applicable to all family members involved in divorce.
