I have been practicing law since 1979. While I am able to reach out-of-court settlements and agreements in most of my cases, I am also an experienced litigator who can assert your rights and protect your interests in civil or criminal court. As a Kansas City family law attorney, I represent clients in matters including divorce, child custody, child visitation, alimony and more. A complete listing along with specific information on each of my areas of expertise is provided under Areas of Practice. My law firm is based in Overland Park, Kansas, but I serve clients throughout Johnson County, Wyandotte County, Leavenworth Count and Miami County.

Divorce is a legal termination of a marriage. To obtain a divorce in Kansas, the petitioner must have been a Kansas resident for at least 60 days. There are three grounds for divorce: incompatibility (no fault); failure to perform a material marital duty or obligation; and incompatibility by reason of mental illness or mental incapacity of one or both spouses.
