A family law court case is often a difficult, emotional experience for the litigants. The legal system appears confusing and cold to an outsider. And the ramifications of the case are serious. A judge's decision in a family law case will affect you and your family for years to come. If you are a party to a family law case, it is in your best interest to consult with an experienced family law attorney to protect yourself.
I would like to help you better understand the process and make good decisions so that you obtain a fair result in your case.
As an attorney, I limit my practice exclusively to marital and family law matters--divorce, child support, custody, visitation, parenting plans, time-sharing schedules, paternity, property division, alimony, domestic violence injunctions, and other such family law issues
If you wish to settle your case, I am also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator. I can help you pursue a quick, fair settlement of your case. Often, a good relationship can be preserved through a settlement that is acceptable to both parties.
I look forward to discussing your family law case with you. Please contact my office at (407) 246-0280 to schedule an initial consultation.
