In family law, many people are forced to represent themselves. I want to help. I want to make sure all people can access high-quality legal services, including those who cannot afford traditional billing arrangements. Hence, my slogan: "A Harvard-educated Family Law Attorney for Everyone." To achieve this, I offer a free initial consultation, payment plans, as well as limited-scope representation where I divide the work between myself and the client to achieve the best outcome in the most cost efficient manner. I believe that no one should have to go without high quality legal representation, especially in something that can be as important and life-changing as a divorce, a child custody dispute, or spousal support matter. If your family law matter is important to you, we can figure out a way to make the finances work.

In the longer term, my goal is to not only divide work between myself and my clients in order to help improve the justice system, I also am working on developing software that will enable clients to understand the complexities of their family law case as well as accomplish work on their case efficiently. In addition to my law degree from Harvard Law School, I hold a master's degree in computer science with a specialization in machine learning from Georgia Tech. Thus, by combining my skills in law and computer science, I aim to develop AI-driven software with two primary goals:

  1. To enable people to represent themselves as much as possible, but with lawyer review when necessary. This will enable the best of both worlds: world-class legal work done at an affordable price.
  2. To also automate as much work as possible for lawyers, so that they may also work as efficiently as possible.

Seeing injustice in the law due to lack of resources has ignited a passion to transform the legal landscape, making high-quality legal assistance accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. Leveraging my background in both law and computer science, I am dedicated to breaking down the barriers that prevent people from obtaining the legal representation they deserve. My vision is to create a future where justice is not just a privilege for the wealthy, but a fundamental right accessible to all. Together, we can make this vision a reality.
