Divorce and Family Law

Family legal disputes, including those involving divorce, can become contentious very quickly. Your rights as a parent, the well-being of minor children, personal interests, financial security, and legal rights are at stake and can be affected at every turn of the settlement or litigation process. To preserve your options and to protect your children, it is essential to consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

Diverse Skills and Comprehensive Solutions

Our experienced attorneys know that oftentimes, one legal issue can have a ripple effect on other related issues such as a divorce involving parents who want to co-parent one or more minor children, a parent who wants to re-locate with one or more minor children out of state, competing child custody and visitation arrangements, child support or alimony, paternity issues or the division of real estate and/or personal property with significant financial or emotional value.
