Each family law case is unique. Our role as your attorney is to educate you and guide you through what can be a complex and challenging experience. This requires a careful and strategic analysis of substantive issues as well as consideration of what process option will best achieve your goals. With the experience of our attorneys comes an understanding and appreciation of the deeply personal and sensitive nature of your family law matter. We believe that as advocates, successfully navigating the emotional aspects of a family law matter may be as important as achieving a favorable legal outcome.

Our practice group works as a team, with input from attorneys in our firm’s other practice groups for specialized help in real estate, business, and tax matters. We also work closely with consulting and forensic experts, such as accountants, appraisers, vocational evaluators, and mental health professionals.

Our attorneys exhibit a high degree of professionalism. We have developed strong ties within the family law community through the years dedicated to the exclusive practice of family law and participation by our attorneys in a variety of local, statewide, and national family law organizations.
