Experience drives our firm and passion gets you the results that you and your family deserve. Litigation regarding custody, child support, spousal maintenance and the division of marital assets is frequently complicated and emotionally challenging. If you are going through a divorce or a Family Court proceeding, you are very well aware of the stress it brings. One of our goals is to develop a solid plan to confront the financial and emotional changes that come with a break-up of a marriage or domestic partnership, while attempting to minimize the stress caused by the legal process. We do this by setting realistic expectations early in the process and working diligently to achieve your goals.
It is our belief that an efficient, expeditious resolution of your situation is the best way to help. Don’t get caught up in a messy, expensive, and acrimonious divorce, let us help you reach your goals with a strategy designed to be efficient. However, we recognize a quick agreement cannot always be attained. We realize that sometimes each client’s unique set of circumstances make compromise impossible. Irrespective of your situation, our attorneys will stand with you through the process. It is our job to shoulder some of the burden of your situation by focusing on and resolving the legal details so you can focus on your family.
