With her Summa cum Laude in Business Management and extensive work experience Wendy has a strong business management and corporate law background. All of this is augmented with tax, contract, estate litigation, and labor law experience. She has especially enjoyed taking on all areas of family and elder law cases & issues, including but not limited to divorce, custody, child support, order modifications and enforcements, time share arrangements and property and asset divisions, paternity, guardianships, conservatorships and trust litigation. As a result of her passion for the personal aspects that family and elder law provide, she has chosen to focus her practice to only those two areas. As a result, Wendy is able to stay abreast of the latest developments in family and elder law and is able to be efficient and focused for her clients.
As a mother herself, Wendy understands the importance of balancing family life and the near and dear issues that are so often involved. She is empathetic to her client's family needs and therefore works to remain flexible to her client's schedule and available for their particular needs.
