I have been through a divorce, so I can relate to many of the things you are feeling. My message is this: Life goes on after divorce – and, as hard as this may be right now, positive things will also unfold.
It is important to remember that you will get through this, and that you are not alone. I knew very early in life that I wanted to be a lawyer.
I began my career handling general civil cases involving business and money disputes. After watching my mentor work with her clients on a more personal level doing family law, I realized that I could make a meaningful difference in the lives of couples and families going through the emotionally wrenching process of divorce. I have never looked back.
In 1999, I was certified by the State Bar of California as a Specialist in Family Law, and in 2003, I founded Zonder Family Law.
