Family law, as the term implies, includes those legal areas that are concerned with family relationships, such as divorce, paternity, child custody and visitation. Family law and divorce cases for those who have children often result in a more difficult situation than is necessary. The hostility often associated with legally ending a marriage can cloud the situation for both the parents and the children.

Divorce & Custody

With nearly half of all marriages ending in divorce, we want you to know there is nothing to be ashamed of if you come to us for help ending your marriage. We have handled all manners of divorce cases, ranging from amicable to hostile, and are confident in our ability to protect your interests from start to finish. We’ll help you determine your post-marital goals and devise a strategy for achieving them.


When it comes to child custody, our main focus is ensuring that your children are safe and happy. We’ll assist you in negotiating with your spouse over their custody and argue your position in court if the two of you are unable to reach an agreement on your own. We also handle modifications and cases of contempt.

Here to Help You Move On & Thrive

We have achieved successful outcomes in child custody cases, child support, visitation rights and physical custody, dividing assets and liabilities, and domestic abuse. We’ve also obtained successful outcomes in cases where one divorcing spouse is relocating to another state and others with challenging aspects.
