Legal Services With the Client's Interests at Heart

Areas of Practice

Family / Domestic

Family law cases can be complicated and expensive, particularly when involving children and marital property. We also understand the emotional issues related to these cases. Our goal in all family law cases is to settle as many issues as possible in advance and to always be mindful of the best interests of the children. We believe these two priorities will keep the costs of litigation down, and more importantly, will minimize the effect separation and divorce inevitably has on the children. If we are unable to arrive at an acceptable settlement of your case and it must go to trial, we will aggressively represent your interest.

We practice all areas of family law including:

Marriage and Divorce
Prenuptial Agreements
Separation Agreements
Divorce (contested and uncontested)
Spousal Maintenance (alimony)
Divison of Marital Property
Child Custody
Indian Child Welfare Act
Child Support
