About Me

Hunnell Law helps various clients prepare and plan for their future. We assist clients going through a divorce to ensure they receive a fair and equitable settlement. We litigate matters when necessary to protect our clients rights for child support, spousal support, alimony, equitable distribution, custody, and parenting time. As advocates for your future, we also sit with clients to assist them with estate plans. Hunnell Law also handles legal malpractice matters, in those events when your former attorney did not meet his/her obligations to you.
