Practice Areas



When it's time for you to dissolve a marriage, we will work hard to negotiate a reasonable settlement. If that's not possible, we will find creative litigation to obtain the best results.


Separation Agreements

Sometimes partners need to take a step back from the marriage but they're not ready to dissolve it completely. We can help draw up a separation agreement that will protect both parties.


Prenuptial and Postnuptial

Planning for the future is important, and these agreements can outline what will happen to a couple's assets if things do not go as hoped.


Child Support/Maintenance

We review all financial documents relating to child support to determine child support obligations, and we can advise any changes as needs change over time.


Child Custody

Often the most difficult issue in a divorce, child custody can be contentious. We will promote the child's best interest and consider parental fitness, family dynamics, and developmental needs of the child.


Apellate Work

When a case is decided, sometimes one party will believe that it was wrongly decided and want to file an appeal. We have extensive experience in representing clients in appellate court.



Clients might want to try mediation/arbitration rather than litigation. We can facilitate this and make sure both parties' legal rights are protected.
