For many individuals and families, the first time they ever retain an attorney is when they file for divorce. Divorce can be a difficult experience, and even educated professionals can be left feeling confused and unable to make decisions. It is a time during which an experienced and caring attorney can make the difference between giving up or moving on. We represent men and women with a variety of family law matters including prenuptial and post-nuptial martial agreements, separation agreements, divorce, custody and visitation, child support, high asset divorce, paternity determinations and protective orders.
