Family Law

There are many aspects of family law. The concept of “family” is continually evolving and every-changing. I find that helping people move on and create new lives to be both challenging and rewarding.

I believe that people should not make decisions until they have a full understanding of the possibilities and a chance to consider the long-term results of their choices. By taking the time to educate my clients about the legal process, I ensure that they know what to expect and that they have all the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. I also understand that in order for my clients to make rational and reasonable decisions, they may need some help handling their stress, anger, and sadness. I provide caring, calm, and personal attention to each of my clients. If needed, I can also assist my clients in finding a therapist, counselor, coach, financial advisor, or other professional to assist them.
