She is one of 239 lawyers state-wide to achieve this distinction.

Ms. Bullock's thoughts on:

Child Custody

'No two custody cases are the same. It is my responsibility to understand the dynamics of my clients' situations so that together we can develop a case plan to achieve their goals. Custody cases can be very complex and very emotional. I make it a goal in each custody case to help guide my client through the process in a way to minimize their stress. Litigation over children is never easy, but I am here to advocate for my client and what is the children's best interest.'


'The appeals process is time sensitive. What I mean by this is that you have a specific and very limited amount of time to file your appeal. There are a multitude of intricate deadlines in order to pursue an appeal of a family law order effectively. Therefore, if you are considering appealing an order, please meet with an attorney as soon as possible. In fact, consider this. Taking proactive measures as soon as you see an issue can make all the difference.'

Understanding the Law

'The law can be a very powerful tool if used correctly. However, sometimes what you think is fair is not what the law is. For example, it is hard for people to comprehend that if one spouse has cheated on the other, he or can she still get one-half of the marital property.'

Family Law Attorney

'I like to think that I am someone who will guide my clients through the legal process and empathize with each client's situation. I think a part of being a good attorney is being a good listener. The more I know about what my client is going through, the better I become at representing each of my clients and achieving their goals. My goal is to have my clients feel comfortable with me. These men and women are already going through a tough enough time when they take the first step to come share their circumstances. They certainly do not need to feel uncomfortable coming to talk with me.'

What is the best part of your job?

'The best part of my job is reconnecting with a former client who is doing great and thriving in their new living situation.'
