Family Law
Together, We Can Make The Best of a Difficult Situation

You’re torn apart — anyone would be. Watching a family wind up in an emotionally draining legal battle is heartbreaking. With the exception of adoption proceedings, most family legal proceedings can take a huge toll on everyone involved, and the longer they drag out, the more pain and suffering they can cause. The term ‘Family Law’ covers a wide range of legal matters.

We take a proactive and highly effective approach to conflict resolution that allows many of our clients to resolve legal disputes quickly and avoid lengthy litigation. This is especially important in cases where children are involved. We try to resolve the issues as quickly as possible so everyone can move on with their lives. At the same time, we aggressively protect your rights.

I came to your office, broken, scared and very unsure of what to do. I had just been accused of Senior Abuse of my husband, whom I loved very much. I knew I could not stay in a situation such as this and yet I did not want to divorce my husband. You and your staff made me feel that I was important enough to take the time to hear my story, give me some encouraging words, and some good sound advice. When I left that office that day, I knew I had the help of a good legal staff and a great, caring attorney. I tried to get things straightened out, however, his children would not let that happen. For the past year you have been there, if and when I needed your assistance. You faithfully returned my calls, or worked me into your busy schedule if it was necessary.
I will, without hesitation, recommend your services to anyone who is in need of a good honest attorney. I know my case is far from over, however, I feel confident that you will be there for me to the end of it.
