Biography

My family law practice includes all aspects of dissolution of marriage or divorce cases, such as child custody and support matters, spousal maintenance or alimony, division of assets and debts. In addition, I handle issues that parties need to resolve after their divorce, known as post-decree matters. Before people get married, I will help them with prenuptial or premarital agreements. I firmly believe that the vast majority of cases should end with a negotiated settlement, but I also regularly appear in court for hearings and trials when issues cannot be resolved by mutual agreement of the parties. I handle cases from the very beginning through the trial. In addition, I draft appellate briefs and argue cases before the Arizona Court of Appeals.

In representing clients, lawyers must learn more about them than just about anyone else the clients deal with. This is particularly true in family law cases. It is important that clients feel comfortable with their attorney. So, a little about me: originally from the Chicago area, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During college, I decided to explore and expand beyond my Midwestern roots, spending summers working as an intern in Washington, D.C. and clerking for judges in Phoenix and Sacramento. I returned to the Midwest for law school, attending Case Western Reserve University School of Law where I graduated cum laude. I am AV Rated by Martindale-Hubbell.

After shoveling one too many driveways in the Midwest, I packed up the day after graduation from law school and drove to Phoenix, where I have lived ever since. I began my legal career at Tiffany & Bosco, P.A., first as an associate and then as a partner. I then moved to The Law Offices of Scott David Stewart, PLLC. In 2012, I decided my clients would be better served if I opened my own firm. Partnering first with Amy and later Carrie were obvious choices to grow the firm. I love Phoenix, the desert and all the great outdoor activities Arizona has to offer. I am very active in the community and served on the Ahwatukee YMCA Board of Managers from 2013-2023 and National Charity League Ahwatukee Chapter Board from 2021-2023. I remain active in National Charity League and very much enjoy being able to give back through volunteer work.
