Personal Profile:

I have been practicing law in Minnesota and Wisconsin since 1978 and have been with Herrick & Hart since 1987.  I focus primarily on family law with some criminal law practice. I work hard at personalizing my practice so each client feels he or she has been well attended to and that both my client and I are fully prepared either for settlement or trial. I know how emotionally difficult divorce can be and try to be careful about that personal side of every divorce problem. I am well acquainted with the other lawyers who practice family law in Eau Claire and the surrounding area and am also familiar with the judges and feel I can offer the very highest quality legal services.

I have been a reserve court commissioner since 2008 handling divorce and family law hearings, small claims trials and conferences and initial appearances in traffic matters.
