About Me

Our practice is focused exclusively on assisting families facing
divorce. For most families, the decision to divorce is followed by
several equally difficult decisions involving children, finances, and
property. When you and your family face divorce, our experienced and
patient family law attorneys are here to help you and your family make
decisions, reach agreements, and move forward.
