Professionalism & Results

When we get to work on your behalf, you'll benefit from:

Our many years of experience

We've practiced law since 1988. Because of our many years of experience and involvement in the legal community, we know the courts, judges, and opposing attorneys. We know the system, we know the players, and we know what to expect for your case.

Our focus and dedication to divorce and family law

Our attorneys focus and specialize in divorce and family law, which means we introduce you to the right attorneys to fit your specific needs.

Our entire team helping you

While you may work primarily with an individual attorney, you benefit from our entire team's knowledge. We regularly share information, learn from one another, and pass on that knowledge to you while working on your case.

Our responsiveness

We'll take and answer your calls. You will hear from a person, not an automated reply, when you reach out to us.

Our creative legal solutions

One size does not fit all. We have deep expertise in non-litigious court alternatives such as collaborative law and mediation that may lower your legal costs and the stress of figuring out child custody while still meeting your goals.

Our tried and true strategies

While we may encourage negotiation and creative solutions early on in the process, we're still ready for hard-hitting, complex litigation when necessary. We will fight hard on your behalf.
