Gwen has worked in the family law arena since 1998. She began her career in the Domestic Relations and moved to a family law firm after spending seven years enforcing child support orders. Having spent so many years watching how devastating it was for families to be without funds to support their children and seeing the fighting over money, she moved to a settlement-oriented family law firm in 2005. After doing just about every job in the law firm, Gwen decided to go to law school at night in 2014.
Once Gwen graduated in 2018, passed the Bar and joined the ranks of attorneys in October of that year, she had already decided what kind of attorney she wanted to be – a peacemaker whenever possible. Gwen will litigate in court if absolutely necessary but considers it her job as your attorney to guide you through the family law processes of divorce, support and custody in the least adversarial, less emotionally traumatic and most economical way possible. She is a trained mediator, having served as a court ordered custody mediator for Montgomery County since 2019 and the Chair of the Family Law Section Mediation Subcommittee since January 2022. In September of 2021, Gwen decided to take the Collaborative Law training in order to supplement her mediation and settlement skills in order to serve her clients.
