In a typical family law file, there are various issues that bear discussion. Each issue is briefly discussed below. It is very important to keep in mind that this outline is general in nature and is simply intended to provide some information for you to consider at your leisure. In family law the facts of each case are critical and each fact situation requires careful consideration by an experienced family law lawyer.

My Approach to resolving family law issues. We bring a common-sense and mindful approach to our clients. Our goal is to get you in and out of the settlement process as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Some lawyers tell clients to sit in the corner, be quiet, and only speak when spoken to. This is not the relationship that I have with my clients. This is a partnership. I know the law and have worked with clients through thousands of separations. However, the client knows his or her life history, desires, goals, his or her spouse, and his or her children…I believe it is possible to be both a zealous advocate and an enthusiastic peacemaker without sacrificing the needs and safety of my clients.
