Family Law

Most people do not envision sitting in a lawyer’s office when they are planning their Big Day. But when a marriage fails, separating individuals’ legal and property interests can get complicated -- especially when children are involved. Family law presents complex issues whose outcomes are critical, therefore experienced and compassionate guidance is essential.
