We Handle All Family Legal Matters

There are psychological aspects to a divorce, both with the parents and with children, that should be considered on a deeper level than merely deciding who gets what. We can help protect your interests while also helping you achieve a healthy perspective on your life following a divorce.

Family Law

Our attorneys have extensive experience in all types of family law cases, including:

Child Custody

Issues concerning child custody are often the most emotional part of any divorce proceeding.

Child Support

When parents get divorced, children are often in the middle of the various decisions that must be made.


Divorce is a major change for any family, but it does not necessarily have to be a change for the worse.

Domestic Violence

Claims of domestic violence are all too common, especially in cases involving particularly contentious divorce actions.

Grandparents' Rights

Grandparents have a vested interest in being part of their grandchildren's lives.

Premarital Agreements

A premarital agreement is perhaps one of the most misunderstood legal documents.

Spousal Support

Spousal support, also known as alimony, can be a sticking point in any divorce proceeding.

Stepparent Adoption

Adoption is one of the most positive components of any family law practice. 

Property Division

Whether you have relatively few assets or possess significant wealth, it is important to ensure that your interests are protected when it comes to a property division agreement.

Psychological Aspects of Divorce

When a marriage has come to an end, the first thing that comes to mind is just getting a divorce and putting everything behind you.
