My practice centers on representing people in domestic relations and juvenile court matters, for issues such as termination of marriage by divorce or dissolution, child support, spousal support, allocation of parental rights and responsibilities and parenting time, including matters for people who have never married but have children and property together. I also provide services for people who are not yet permitted to marry but have a lasting partnership by providing documents such as powers of attorney for health care, partnership agreements, wills and other estate-planning documents.
I practice law as a solo in Akron, Ohio, serving clients in "real people" life situations, seeking to make bad situations a little better for them. It is draining and demanding work, which sometimes makes me rethink that whole life plan thing, but sometimes a client will write something very uplifting and affirming as this one recently did: <<Thank you for all your help, but primarily for your willingness to listen, that meant so much to me.>>
That will keep me going for a while now. Smile.
