Overview

MY PRACTICE

My practice focuses on Family Law. Strong families are the backbone of society but unfortunately, divorce and custody disputes disrupt a family and are particularly hard on children. I went to law school because I wanted to advocate for children in difficult situations. By helping families transition through a divorce or when they have to co-parent, I can help provide stability and lessen the negative impacts of these events.

I approach legal issues on a case-by-case basis. Although the same law may apply to multiple cases, the unique facts of a case can change the outcome. I enjoy getting to know my clients as people and helping them navigate the difficulties of parenting and divorce in the best way possible.

MORE THAN MCBRAYER

I am always looking for ways to build and revive my local community and help those who are often overlooked and underserved. To further my goal of helping children, I have volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate and served on the Kentucky Panel for foster care. I have also served as board member of Louisville Islamic Center of Compassion and Guiding Light Islamic Center, taught English to refugees, and hosted a monthly soup kitchen at D’Nalley’s. I also volunteer at my child’s school.

HOW I’M DIFFERENT

I am driven by passion to help others on a career and personal level. My personal experience and cultural background have provided me a unique perspective on family law. I want my clients to go to sleep at night with peace of mind, knowing they have an advocate looking out for their best interests. I will always be available to discuss whatever issues they may encounter and together, I am confident that we will find a solution.

BEFORE MCBRAYER

Before joining McBrayer, I practiced Family Law with Clay Daniel Winner. Prior to that I was a staff attorney in Division Three (3), Jefferson Family Court. This opportunity allowed me to experience the justice system firsthand, learn its innerworkings, and gain valuable insight into judicial decision-making processes. During my law school tenure, I had the opportunity to practice as a student attorney for survivors of Domestic Violence at the Robert & Sue Ellen Ackerson Law Clinic. I also served as an extern at the Indiana Department of Child Services. These experiences allowed me to pursue my passion of helping both children and survivors of domestic violence. I also gained international experience at the Federal Ombudsman Office for Protection of Women in the Workplace in Islamabad, Pakistan.
