Judith began her law career practicing in the field of bankruptcy law. She then moved to a general practice law firm, where she gained diverse litigation and transactional experience, including in the areas of divorce, personal injury, medical malpractice litigation, estate planning, corporate, franchise, and real estate transactions. There, she realized her passion for working with families.

Judith’s practice is focused in the areas of divorce, child custody (allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time), paternity, and guardianship proceedings. She is an aggressive trial attorney and persuasive negotiator with extensive experience negotiating and litigating divorce related issues, including custody, visitation, maintenance, child support, the distribution of assets and liabilities, domestic violence, and orders of protection.

Judith provides her clients with focused, compassionate, and individualized representation. What you have to say is important. She listens carefully to her clients in order to provide them with practical and effective solutions. She believes in empowering and educating her clients to enable them to make informed decisions.

Judith has special experience in meeting the needs of children and working with the dynamics of families. Judith is a court-certified Guardian ad Litem in the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit who is appointed by the court to investigate the best interests of children in contested custody cases. Additionally, Judith is trained and certified in mediation, which can offer an effective alternative to expensive litigation. As a mediator, Judith guides parties in the process of creating their own solutions tailored to their needs and the needs of their family.
