I am a Bloomington native with over 41 years of experience practicing family law. I am known to family, friends and many legal colleagues by my nickname "Sally".


I enjoy working in partnership with my clients to provide experienced, knowledgeable, caring and conscientious representation, both in and out of the Courtroom. I assist my clients in understanding the law as it applies to their unique situations and their options based upon their facts and Indiana law.
