Experience When It Counts

Navigating any legal issue is challenging. Divorce brings unique emotional and financial stresses. We understand the range of emotions you are experiencing, your concerns for your children’s well-being, and your fear for your financial security.

Helping our clients achieve favorable resolution to the issues that dramatically impact their daily lives is our mission. We focus on helping our clients to keep control of their life, now and in the future.

Whether you have a complex, high net worth, and high income divorce, or a simple uncontested matter we will guide you, every step of the way, to the best result possible.

We will:

  • protect your legal rights
  • act in your best interests
  • give alternatives to traditional litigation through collaborative law – keeping your case out of court
  • develop custom-tailored solutions to fit your family’s needs
  • educate you on the law and the range of possible outcomes
  • guide you on attainable goals
  • counsel you on making positive and proactive decisions in the best interest of your family
  • emphasize a positive parenting relationship, for happy and healthy children – and parents
  • handle every detail of your case with professionalism, discretion, and cost-efficiency

We will not:

  • help you “punish” your spouse or significant other
  • help you create unnecessary bitterness, conflict, or expense
  • litigate to the “last drop of blood” when there are better, less damaging courses of action

Our goal is to settle your dispute as quickly and discreetly as possible through solving problems, not creating controversies.

Your choices and actions in your family law dispute have long-term effects on you, your children, and your family relationships. We help you focus on creative problem solving that will serve as the foundation for your happy and productive future.

Consultations, Retainer Fees and Payments

Your consultation allows us to fully determine the nature of the issues in your case. A consultation with one of our lawyers may be the most important thing you do in deciding your future. We do not offer free consultations. The cost of the consultation will be the best money you spend on your family law matter. Our attorneys are available to do consultations by phone or video conference. All appointments for consultation must be made through our scheduling coordinator.

Schedule Your Consultation

We cannot determine an appropriate retainer fee before the consultation. The retainer fee will depend on many factors including; if your case is contested or uncontested, is there a dispute involving children, is there a family-owned business, what process will we use, and many other issues. We will educate you on the law and how it applies to the facts of your case so you can make the choice which is right for you. The fee is discussed at the end of your consultation. We accept all major credit cards.
