Biography

I have over 20 years working in complex family law matters in the Tampa Bay Area. My experience and commitment to the practice of family law has earned me Board Certification in Marital & Family Law in the state of Florida and more recently the honor of becoming a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Florida Chapter. I founded KLK Family Law upon the understanding that although most of us have been “touched” by divorce or a family law matter in some way, the complexity of it is unknown until you personally are faced with it.
 
Having experienced divorce personally, I understand the emotional burden the process places on individuals and their families. The multi-faceted areas of the law that must be considered during a divorce or other family law matter require careful consideration and legal creativity. I assist my clients in developing a cohesive plan with a goal toward an effective and efficient conclusion. 
 
I am very passionate about actively listening to my clients' needs and goals and I work with them individually to develop appropriate legal strategies geared to their unique situation. Although I have provided representation in hundreds of cases, each client is unique. My approach is a personalized to each individual and family that I represent. I have also received advanced Collaborative Law training, volunteer with local charitable organizations, and actively speak at seminars on various family law topics.

While I am not working with clients in the office or representing them in court, I enjoy spending time with my husband fishing, diving, boating, exercising, traveling and playing with our pups, Molly and Waylon.
