Cultural sensitivity is extremely important to me and I try to evaluate my actions with a Diversity, Equity and Inclusive (DEI) view. I have been fortunate to participate in numerous DEI trainings over the years and continually read books to enhance my knowledge and sensitivity.
I am Chair of The Florida Orchestra DEI Standing Committee. I am a member of the Hillsborough County Bar Association DEI Committee, and a member of the League of Women Voters DEI Committee.
My cases have reflected the diversity of the Tampa Bay community. I have represented African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Middle Eastern Americans, and Native Americans. I have also handled many Muslim divorces.
For years, I have handled LGTBQ cases, which now are much simpler because of the recognition of same-sex marriage.
