This unique perspective provides a comprehensive approach where Ms. Jo is not only able to competently handle cases in two separate areas of law but has an in-depth understanding of the complex effects of the intersection of the two, such as defending domestic violence charges for a client in a child custody case or minimizing the effects of client’s criminal case history on a pending adoption case. Especially for those clients who have both family law and criminal law issues, Ms. Jo is highly equipped to pursue an outcome most beneficial for the client.
