Divorce And Family Law Overview

When faced with a divorce or another family law issue, many of my clients come to me asking similar questions such as "How long will this take?" or "How much is it going to cost?" Although the inquiries may be the same, the responses to these questions vary greatly depending on the circumstances of each case.

Personalized Family Law Services

I am an attorney who helps my clients get clear, straightforward answers to their questions and concerns as they move through divorce or other family law matters. I don't build up false hopes or make unrealistic promises. I set realistic expectations that help my clients resolve their issues in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.

Throughout my 25 years of practicing, I have handled all types of family law issues. Below are some of the most common types of cases I see:

  • Divorce, including military divorce and complex/high-asset divorce
  • Child custody, visitation and child support
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • The division of property and assets, including retirement benefits and pensions, the family home, and family-owned business
  • Division of debts
  • Adoptions
  • Paternity actions (determining the parents of a child)
  • Fathers' rights
  • Grandparents' rights
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Same-sex family law
  • Post-divorce modifications
  • Domestic partnerships

I make sure my clients have the information they need to make difficult decisions. I will explain the advantages and disadvantages of litigation versus reaching a settlement, offer a prospective timeline for resolving the case and a rough estimate of the costs.
