PRACTICE
AREAS

DIVORCE

 

We use a variety of approaches to help our clients resolve family law issues. While our focus is always on negotiating a fair settlement, we will not hesitate to go to court to protect your interests. 

PATERNITY

 

Special circumstances apply in cases involving the rights and obligations of unmarried parents. We are skilled in helping unmarried parents use new attitudes to resolve their paternity concerns.

DISPUTE-RESOLUTION METHODS

 

Explore the benefits of mediation and Collaborative Process as alternative methods to the traditional litigation model of dispute resolution. We will guide you through these approaches, which can help couples work through disputes together and make mutual decisions.

POST-DECREE MODIFICATIONS

Over time, adjustments to the original divorce agreement may be appropriate. Our divorce and family law attorneys combine experience, tenacity and skill to help you attain the modifications you need.

FAMILY LAW APPEALS

 

If you are considering an appeal of your divorce proceeding, we will carefully review your situation and build the strongest possible case, providing effective family law advocacy to secure a positive outcome on your behalf.

PARENTING RESPONSIBILITY

 

We will tirelessly pursue innovative solutions to the complex issues of parenting responsibility (decision-making and parenting schedules). We will fight to ensure that you and your children are in the best possible position as you move forward.
