Caring and Compassionate Legal Help in Family Law Matters and Civil Litigation (Negotiation and Settlement, Trials, Appeals)
FAMILY LAW Marital Dissolutions (Divorces) We provide caring, compassionate and sensible advice to our clients who are experiencing marital difficulties and are contemplating, or going through, a breakup. Our representation in negotiations and contested proceedings is designed to get the optimal result for our clients with the least difficulty and expense. We have over thirty years of experience representing husbands and wives, young and old, with and without minor children, with and without large marital estates and/or incomes. Post-Judgment Proceedings We also handle matters that arise after the divorce is final: enforcement and modification of custody, visitation, child support, maintenance, and related matters; removal cases (where the custodial parent wishes to move the child out of state); college-age expense and support matters; and enforcement of property settlement provisions. Parentage Cases We represent clients dealing with the legal aspects of children born outside of marriage: determinations of parentage, and related issues (original and post-judgment) including custody, visitation, removal, and support.

We have experience in most common kinds of civil litigation, on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants.
