  1. Contested Divorce. If it’s going to be a hard fought, messy divorce over property and finances, you need an aggressive attorney with a reputation for outworking the other side.  We know how to fight for our clients!
  2. No-Fault Divorce.  When you don’t have to prove your spouse did anything wrong in the marriage, and both people can agree on reasonable terms, then a no-fault divorce can often be the best approach.
  3. Collaborative Divorce. If both parties are still talking and agree on all pertinent issues, collaborative divorce is a good option. The parties agree not to litigate, and attorneys guide the couple using sit down, 4-way negotiations.
  4. Separation Agreement. Don’t let your spouse take advantage of you when preparing a separation or property settlement agreement. We can ensure all of your interests are considered and protected.
  5. Child Custody & Support. Children need stability in their lives. When one parent has selfishly disrupted that stability, we help you accomplish what’s in the best interest of your children. Both parents also have financial responsibilities to their children.  We work hard on your behalf to ensure those responsibilities are met by the other side.
  6. Child Visitation. Children suffer when they’re bounced around like a ping pong ball.  We help you fight for what’s in the best interest of your children.
  7. Modification of Court Order. Asking the court for a modification after the fact can result in negative consequences.
  8. LGBT Family Issues. We help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals in family law cases involving separation agreements, child custody and support orders, prenuptial agreements and more.

We also work with clients on other family matters including:

  1. Prenuptial Agreement. Prenups are especially important when one spouse earns significantly more money than the other or there are children involved from a previous marriage.
  2. Adoption Case. Adopting a child should be a joyous occasion, but the process can be complicated and frustrating. We can guide you through the adoption process, bringing your child home as soon as possible.
  3. Wills, Trusts and Probate. An estate plan is essential for managing what happens to your wealth and assets upon your death. It helps protect your family.
