I am an attorney that practices in the areas of family law, i.e. child support, custody, divorce, abuse/neglect, criminal and civil. I have a MSW since 1987 with a specialty in children and families. I believe that children need both parents in their lives if possible. I stand for strong families, strong fathers, strong children and strong communities. I view most situations holistically. As I begin to blog you will understand what a holistic view is. If we help the fathers who have a criminal record clean up their criminal past via an expungement when they have paid their debt to society they then can pay child support, provide financially for their family, obtain gainful employment and not steal our copper, hub caps or break in our homes and thus the community is protected.
