Our attorneys have successfully handled litigation involving the most contentious and difficult matters, from highly-contested custody disputes, to complex property division cases involving high-value assets and closely-held businesses, to complicated support issues.  Our attorneys have also worked with clients towards resolution of their family law cases through settlement, with a minimum amount of conflict and strife.  We diligently prepare each case with the needs and goals of the client in mind and, if a case does proceed to a trial or appeal, you can feel secure with the extensive litigation and appellate experience possessed by members of the firm. 

We recognize that many family law cases involve difficult and stressful circumstances and decisions.  We realize how important your emotional needs will be at this time. The choices you make as you move through this process can affect you, your family, and your financial future for years to come.   Your family law matter is just as important to us as it is to you, and we dedicate our practice towards finding a creative and workable solution that meets your needs.
