Experience When It Counts
Navigating any legal issue in your life can be a challenge. Family law issues bring with them unique emotional and financial stresses. We understand the range of emotions you are experiencing, your concerns for your children’s well-being and your fears of the future’s unknowns.

Helping our clients secure fair and favorable resolutions to legal issues that impact so dramatically their daily lives is our purpose.

We focus upon family law to help people keep control of their lives.

Whether your case is a straightforward uncontested divorce or a complex property division and high net worth divorce rift with conflict, we will guide you to your unique best solutions.

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 you and your family’s needs
  • educate on the law and the range of possible outcomes
  • guide on attainable goals
  • counsel 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 creative problem solving.

Your choices and actions in your family law matter have long-term impacts for you, your children and your family relationships. We help you focus upon non-contentious avenues that will serve as the foundation for your future.
