Family Law

Family law matters can be extremely difficult. No matter what conflict you’re facing within your family, whether or not the court is necessary, these situations can take a toll on anyone. Family relationships have some of the strongest holds on our emotions and life decisions, so when those relationships feel broken, there is a lot of stress and worry about moving forward.

Areas of Family Law

Family law can include many different situations that a family might go through, and dealing with these issues often comes with mixed feelings and confusion. As a practicing family law attorney, I have experience handling cases that involve:

  • Alimony

  • Adoption

  • Child Support

  • Divorce

  • Equitable Distribution

  • Guardianship

  • Separation

  • Visitation

I most often counsel family members considering legal separation or divorce and are concerned about the impact it will have on their children. When you work with me, I will go over how separation can affect your relationships with your children, what's in their best interest in terms of child custody and support, and so on.

You and your family deserve the best life possible, and as your attorney, I will provide you with compassionate legal services and support to help you get there.

Do I Really Need an Attorney?

I understand that every family is unique, and so are their needs. Because family law can be so complex, it’s important to have an experienced attorney on your side that you can trust to provide sound legal counsel and representation with your best interests in mind. A family law attorney can make sure that nothing is missed or overlooked on your side of things so that you don’t risk getting taken advantage of by your spouse or another personal relationship.

Even with the most amicable divorces, when both parties appear to agree on the matters at hand, the need for an attorney still applies. One person’s interests usually come at a cost of the other's and if you aren’t careful, you could end up working to the benefit of someone else’s interests rather than doing what is best for you. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help fight to see your interests are met.
