About me

We are a small law firm that focuses on Family Law matters, however we can also assist you with other legal matters, if need be.  I had a few goals in mind when I started practicing, one being providing quality and competent advice/service for an affordable price.  Most of the work I accept is on a fixed fee basis (including small payment plans), which means there is no guessing as to what your final bill would be. Also, we offer low hourly rates for clients who opt to go that route.   At our law office, you are not treated like a client, but rather like family.  We all understand that any legal matter, especially those revolving around family law can be stressful and upsetting. That is why we only take on a limited number of cases, to give each client the care and attention they deserve.  We welcome you to give us a call if any of the aforementioned legal problems arise.  If it's outside the scope of our practice, we are more than happy to refer you to lawyers who practice in that area.
