Family is important, and when family disputes arise, it is important to resolve them in a way that allows functional and mutually beneficial relationships to prevail. At its core, family law provides families with structure and gives certain rights to the members of that family.

Our approach to each family law case involves compassion tempered by our knowledge of and experience with the law. Every person's family situation is different and requires personal and focused individual attention. We will listen to you and provide you with a clear explanation of how the law and court system may impact your situation.

Our attorneys will competently guide you through the legal system with your and your family's best interests as the highest priority. We represent clients in a wide array of family-related legal matters, including:

1. Divorce
          Contested divorce, uncontested divorce, alimony/spousal maintenance, property division, annulments and modifications

2. Child Custody
          Custody, parenting time and visitation

3. Parents' Rights
          Paternity actions, mothers' rights, fathers' rights, grandparents' rights, termination of parental rights, child support, support modifications and contempt actions

4. Domestic Abuse
          Orders for protection, restraining orders and child protection

Services that we offer that do not fall within these general categories include nonmarital property division, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, mediation and early neutral evaluations.

We have years of experience and obtain positive results through contested hearings or trials and also through carefully negotiated settlements. We present each client with the options afforded by the legal system and explain how we can obtain the best possible result. We also consider each client's financial bottom line and make every effort to discuss the potential costs and risks involved in handling a case in this most important and specialized area of the law.
