Divorce and Family Law

I handle many types of cases that fall under the wide umbrella of family law. There is no area of the law more emotional than family law.

After all, often your children’s future is at stake and nothing comes close in importance to that.

Many parents fear the effects, financial and emotional, of the divorce on the children. They worry about whether there will be enough money to keep up the life they have been used to, or even just to pay the bills.

Will I still be able to be a part of my children’s life? How will I adapt to seeing them less often? And many other primal emotions come into play.

Then, there are the purely “business” aspects of dividing the property and maintenance (alimony).

There are thousands of lawyers with the technical expertise to guide clients through this process. The difference is in the intangibles. My goal is to serve my client in the best way possible. Usually this means to try and have the parties work out a fair agreement, and avoid a costly, bitter divorce that will scar everyone involved.

But I also know that this is not always possible. There are times when, on behalf of my client, I must fight, and I do.

I have gone through a very tough divorce, and I’m familiar with the emotions that go along with it. I have children, and I can help my clients deal with the sensitive issues that arise from custody disputes. The dissolution of a family unit is one of the most heartbreaking and stressful experiences in life, and a good attorney should be supportive beyond just the scope of the courtroom.

Most of my family law clients trust me, their attorney, to advocate for them and to always have their best interests at heart. I take that trust very seriously, and I’m committed to providing the type of representation that I would want for myself or for my loved ones.

Emotions are a major factor in family law. Sometimes a client will want to make a decision out of anger, frustration or just a feeling of defeat. When this happens, I am committed, in my role of advisor, to advise and guide so that you make the right decisions for yourself and your family.

If you are facing any of these difficult situations, you are not alone. Call my office for a free consultation, and feel the comfort of knowing you have an experienced advocate on your side.
