Divorce is a trying time in anyone’s life. The law surrounding child custody, child support, visitation, adoption, property division, and spousal support are complex, and the procedural rules can be confusing.
Our firm combines legal skill and experience with concern and compassion for you and your family.
Where possible, our family lawyers focus on resolving your family law issues through collaboration and mediation. We encourage this approach – as opposed to litigating personal matters in court, because your future relationships must be considered, and litigation may not be the best way to preserve them.
But collaboration only works when both parties are willing to be reasonable, so we still prepare all of our family law cases as if they were going to be contested at trial. If the best result requires bringing your case before a judge, then we will aggressively advocate for you in the courtroom.
Of course, some cases require legal action even after the divorce has been finalized. We provide professional help when our clients need to change or enforce child support orders, parent-child contact (visitation) or spousal support (alimony). A parent’s changed circumstances, such as a new job, unemployment, or a move out of state, can require a review of a child support agreement or custody order.
We listen and investigate until we understand – because an attorney should never cause new problems or exacerbate old ones. We do not focus on the dispute; we focus on resolving the dispute in the best way for our clients.
