Choosing an attorney can be one of the most important decisions a person can make.

We help you set a goal and help to find the path to reach that goal.  We take the time, from the initial client contact with our office, via a FREE CONSULTATION, either in person or by phone, to get to know you as well as your goals and desires.  In this way, we learn not only the specific issues of the case, but also the unique client we hope to represent.

We look at the attorney-client relationship as a very personal relationship based upon trust, confidence and reliability. All of these factors contribute to our attorneys and staff making accessibility to the client one of our greatest priorities.

Divorce and separation matters are some of the most emotional and life changing experiences you can face. When dealing with issues such as matrimonial/divorce, contested divorce, legal separation, family law, child custody and child support, visitation, spousal support, paternity, property division, and even the arrangement of pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreements, emotions often interfere with sound judgment.  An experienced attorney by your side, with whom you have a relationship of trust, can help you see your long term goals beyond today’s emotions.

We will help not only represent your interests in the courtroom, but help you make decisions that are best for the entire family as you move on to the next stage of your life.
