Individuals and families involved in domestic disputes need both personal and professional support through times that are highly emotional. These individuals require calm and reasoned decision-making. As an experienced family law attorney, I have represented clients from nearly every county in the State of Utah. I have also represented clients from throughout the western United States and from countries as far away as Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, and Hungary.

My family law and domestic relations areas of practice include:

  • Divorce – If you or your spouse is considering a separation or divorce in Utah, I can help you. I will inform you about your legal rights and help you resolve:
  • Custody arrangements, including decision making authority for your children, physical placement, and visitation schedules
  • Property division issues, including the valuation and distribution of real estate, retirement accounts, and other marital assets
  • Child support matters
  • Spousal support and alimony

I know that no two cases are exactly alike. Therefore, I will work with you to find the best way to resolve your case. Whether through settlement negotiations, mediation, or litigation in the courts, my goal is to help you get a fair resolution in the most cost effective manner possible.

I invite you to call me at 435-586-2384 or contact me online to schedule a consultation to discuss any questions you may have about your divorce or legal separation.


  • Marital Property Division – marital home, real estate, and other marital asset and debt division, bank accounts, business interests, retirement accounts, pension plans, stock options, wills, trusts and family limited partnerships
  • Child Custody – Child custody is one of the most important, and sometimes most difficult issues to resolve in family law matters. In determining how parental responsibilities are shared, the following issues need to be considered:
  • The primary residence of your child or children
  • Visitation schedule
  • How decision making authority will be exercised in matters involving your child or children’s health, education and welfare

Many factors can effect the custody determination. It is important that you know your rights and that the needs of your children are taken into consideration and their best interests protected.

If you need help in an original custody determination or if you are having issues or problems with a court ordered custody arrangement, I can help.

I invite you to call me at 435-586-2384 or contact me online to schedule a consultation to learn more about your child custody options.

  • Child Support – establishment of child support, child support recalculation, child support modification and child support enforcement actions
  • Domestic Abuse – domestic abuse and domestic violence, child abuse, restraining orders, stalking and harassment
  • Paternity – In Utah, there are important deadlines with potentially significant ramifications if unmet. I help both mothers and fathers understand their rights and responsibilities in paternity cases, including child support, visitation and custody.

I invite you to call to set up a consultation at 435-586-2384 or contact me online.

Post Divorce Modifications and Enforcement – Although the arrangements in your divorce were reasonable when made, things change. Ex-spouses move, take on new challenges, and/or want to spend less or more time with their children. As a result, the visitation agreements, custody arrangements, child support and alimony may no longer be equitable.
