Family Law

Separation, divorce and child custody issues are among the most serious and complicated legal challenges you can face. The changes brought about by this type of legal action impact every aspect of your life going forward. It is important to hire an attorney with the knowledge, experience and reputation to make sure that your life is protected in the litigation.

Our firm has decades of experience helping our clients through the trials of familial change. When children are involved in a divorce, it is important that their parents maintain a proper financial and physical position to provide the best resources for the children's wellbeing and development.

Having represented the child support agency for years, we have a detailed understanding of the State's child support laws and know how important it is to ensure your children's security.
