Family Law

Divorces or the establishment of paternity mean life-altering changes for the whole family. Every couple’s situation is different, and every client has specific needs and concerns that must be met, and rights that require proper protection by our firm. Our clients need and deserve experienced attorneys who are cognizant of the financial and emotional impact of such litigation as well as the potential impact that custody, visitation, spousal and child support, and equitable distribution determinations will have on them and their children. Our firm’s goal is to assist you through this tumultuous time and transition into the next phase of your life. We will help you outline your goals, develop strategies and implement methods to achieve your objectives.

We are cognizant of the fact that family law matters can be financially and emotionally draining. We have extensive experience in child custody matters, including in complex jurisdictional issues presented in interstate disputes. In addition, we are well-versed in issues such as parental alienation, sexual and physical abuse of children, and relocation both domestically and internationally with their children. If necessary, our office can enlist the assistance of experts in other fields, including: mental health professionals, tax law, real estate and personalty appraisals, business valuation and forensic accountants.

Whenever possible, we strive to resolve cases before going to court to reduce the legal and emotional costs of domestic relations litigation. Often times, the court mandates that the parties mediate their case to try to resolve all issues before the final hearing. Successful mediation or settlement allows an acceptable result to be reached while saving both parties money in legal fees and court costs. Whether in settlement negotiations, mediation, or court proceedings, we will always work to make sure that you and your children receive satisfactory results at the conclusion of your case.
