She also values Collaborative Divorce as a powerful option for her clients and offers advanced Collaborative techniques and interest-based negotiation skills.

Bobbie’s commitment to families is evident not only in her case work, but also in the time she spends working with organizations and within the Court system to decrease the animosity in family law and find solutions for families in transition.

The New Mexico native was born and raised in Farmington, and grew up in a family business. This experience gives her an intimate understanding of the dynamics in cases that involve family businesses.

Thank you your dedication to my welfare and that of my Children.  I am eternally grateful.  I am a lucky man to have great friends.
