A Client-First Approach to Family Law

Family law issues are rarely well-defined, and often, clients have multiple and overlapping legal issues. Divorcing parents, for example, may have a tangled web of child support, alimony, and visitation issues which must be resolved before a dissolution of marriage may be finalized. We believe that the best legal service comes from putting clients first. Our attorneys can sit down with you to learn about your specific situation and tailor a legal strategy to meet your goals.

Are you going through one or more of the following family law issues? Let us help!

  • Child custody
  • Orders of Protection
  • Visitation
  • Child support
  • Modification of Child Support
  • Divorce
  • Modifications
  • Property division
  • Spousal support
  • Paternity

Every family will have a different story and we can help clients to explore the range of their legal options. While resolving a dispute, tools such as mediation can be beneficial, however, if one spouse is set on pursuing litigation, you must be prepared to head into the courtroom. When a legal battle becomes unavoidable, our attorneys will not hesitate to provide powerhouse representation.
