Our Practice

  • Choosing the right family law attorney is an important first step. Your decision should be based not just on legal experience, but on personal factors as well, including your comfort level with the firm or attorney, and cost.
  • Divorce is a process, not a one-time event. We are here for our clients — ready to answer questions, provide clear explanations and respond to changing needs and challenges throughout.
  • We are comfortable in the courtroom and in negotiating a settlement.
  • Contested or uncontested, divorce is not an easy thing to go through. We are sensitive to the difficult nature of any divorce and will give you and your case the time, attention and thorough preparation it deserves.
  • Child custody and visitation are major concerns for many of our clients. Our lawyers work diligently to protect your interests and the best interests of your children. We also assist clients in matters involving grandparent rights, paternity or parental relocation. We offer guidance and quality legal services for both step-parent and agency adoptions as well.
  • Child support and spousal support are often ordered as part of the divorce process. We can explain the various factors courts take into account in resolving these issues and work with you to achieve a result that is fair and reasonable under the circumstances.
  • Dividing the assets and debts that have accumulated during a marriage or long-term relationship can be a very complex, contentious process. Our experience in both marital and non-marital property division can help you achieve fair and equitable results.
  • Allegations of domestic violence are taken very seriously by both family and criminal courts. Our attorneys help clients obtain temporary and permanent orders of protection. We also aggressively represent clients who have been accused of domestic violence to defend themselves in both civil and criminal proceedings.
  • A well-drafted written prenuptial or marital agreement offers the best protection of a client's financial and familial interests. We help clients negotiate and execute legally binding prenuptial and post-marital agreements that minimize the potential for the uncertainty and expense of divorce and other family law litigation.
  • After a divorce or separation, many people see their lives and needs change in unexpected ways. Our lawyers help our clients to negotiate and obtain modifications to custody, visitation and support agreements. We also assist clients who need help with the enforcement of marital agreements involving property and debt, spousal and child support, and custody and visitation, and the interpretation of these agreements.
