Evan J. Starcevic

About me

You have a lot at stake in a divorce – your finances, your children, and your future.  In growing up as child of a divorced family, fighting as a parent for custody of my own daughter, and representing others as an attorney in contested and collaborative cases, I have a unique perspective to share with you.  You may be facing some of life’s toughest challenges, and difficult decisions will lay ahead.  I’ve been there too.  But things will get better, and I would be honored to share in that walk with you.
