About me

If you find yourself facing a difficult divorce or separation, you want to have someone on your side. At Esp Kreuzer Cores,  our family law attorneys understand your need for straight answers and supportive guidance. Your needs and rights are our number one priority. We are compassionate and knowledgeable attorneys who are committed to helping you through the divorce process and ensuring that if children are involved, the best interests of your children are put first.

We have experience negotiating on behalf of parents in all aspects of a divorce, from custody and visitation, to child support, property division, spousal maintenance, fathers' rights and post-decree modification. We also handle paternity matters, adoptions and juvenile matters.

Our lawyers will listen carefully to your concerns and can answer your questions and explain your rights. We can help explain the divorce process to you, help you understand the possible outcomes, and counsel you about what course of action to take. Knowledge is the first step in making the right decision. We understand that this is a difficult time in your life and truly care what happens to you.

Our family law attorneys are dedicated to providing the highest level of service and professional representation. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your family-related legal issue.
