Family Law

 

Minor disagreements between spouses are to be expected.  Prolonged, destructive conflict is not. When such conflict arises and divorce ensues, we offer aggressive legal representation.

Having litigated contentious multimillion dollar family law actions, our attorneys understand the complexities, hostilities, and anxieties relating to the issues of property division, spousal support, child custody and visitation, and child support.  At the outset of the case, we quickly ascertain your needs, determine your goals, and carefully investigate the opposition’s claims.  Armed with a thorough understanding of the case, we ardently advocate your interests with compassion and zeal.

We also prepare prenuptial agreements, postnuptial marital agreements, and cohabitation agreements. During consultation, we examine your assets, debts, and obligations. We take a pragmatic and sensitive approach to ensure dialogue, promote understanding, and establish peace of mind.

Our family law practice includes:

Prenuptial Agreements Divorce Spousal Support/Alimony
Postnuptial Marital Agreements Separation & Mediation Child Custody, Support & Visitation
Guardianships Property Division Asset Protection
