You have lots of questions, and everyone you know is offering advice.

However, there’s a significant difference between the opinions of friends and family, who may be upset or angry, and legal advice from an experienced and compassionate attorney.


Marriage is a legal contract as well as an emotional connection. We understand that it’s a confusing and overwhelming time for you.

We can help you sort through the complexity and determine the right approach for you in your particular situation.

Separation, divorce, child custody, division of property, support, and more… these are complex issues.

Every situation is unique, so what worked for your neighbor or your uncle may not be right for you.

You need an attorney who understands why your divorce is different, who will listen to and understand your concerns before recommending a course of action that will impact you and your family.
