I realize you have a lot at stake and I take that very seriously. I work diligently to ensure timeliness and accuracy. Exceptional organization is paramount, so nothing slips through the cracks.

I assist senior shareholder Alan Eidsness with marriage dissolution cases involving complex financial matters and child custody disputes. With more than 10 years of paralegal experience, I bring comprehensive knowledge of investigation, analysis, and case management. I will help you navigate the process beginning with gathering and preparing formal and informal discovery requests and responses. Next, I will assist with developing marital standard-of-living schedules and budgets; preparing nonmarital tracings of various assets; creating and maintaining asset and liability schedules; drafting and analyzing various financial documents; and calculating child support and spousal maintenance. Finally, I will help prepare for and attend mediations, settlement conferences, arbitrations, and motion hearings; and assist with witness and trial preparation.

During 20 years in civil litigation, real estate, and lending, I sharpened my investigative discovery skills, including uncovering hidden assets and background investigations. I have financial acumen and extensive experience working on high-net-worth cases. Helping you achieve the results you want fuels my drive and determination and seeing you satisfied is very rewarding.
