My profession is my passion. I didn't end up practicing family law by mistake or coincidence. I went to law school so that I could help people with divorce and custody matters, and that remains my goal today. As Partner of the firm, I value having a choice in the cases and clients which we accept. I invite you to read the reviews written by our former clients.
If you are getting divorced and have children, part of the divorce agreement will involve determining where and with whom the children will live. A child custody lawyer can help you negotiate custody, either by agreement or in court. The custodial parent (the one the child lives with) earns the legal right to make decisions regarding the child's lifestyle, welfare, and education. Some parents opt for joint custody, which means children divide their time between both parents' homes, and parents share the right to make decisions on behalf of the children. If you as parents are unable to agree on child custody, a judge will decide for you.
