We are here to help families and individuals who are going through stressful times in their lives, usually related to death or divorce. We also work with those planning ahead to try to ameliorate the effects those events can have. We handle all types of family law and probate matters, including the preparation of wills and the negotiation and preparation of prenuptial agreements, for those planning for both death and divorce. We also handle the litigation of contested probate matters, and contested divorces and post-divorce modifications and enforcement actions. These might include child custody, child support, visitation and relocation matters. We also specialize in issues related to permanent alimony, rehabilitative alimony, termination of alimony, and conversion of rehabilitative to permanent alimony matters.
We also love to handle adoptions, and are very happy to help children find permanent homes. We handle stepparent and relative adoptions, as well as private adoptions of newborns. We can help birthparents find the right adoptive family, help with the payment of reasonable and necessary medical and living expenses, and help to arrange counseling. We work hard to assure all parties to an adoption of a confidential, secure, and prompt finalization of the adoption placement.
We know it can be very stressful to come see a lawyer, and we do our best to make you feel comfortable. It is our goal to educate our clients about the substantive and procedural laws which are involved in their matters, and to guide and advise them though the process. We know the law, but it’s your case. We want our clients to make informed decisions about the management of their cases. We can’t guarantee a certain outcome, but we want our clients to feel they’ve done the right thing, and that they’ve done it the right way.
Our whole staff is committed to delivering excellent service to individuals and families, and we are particularly skilled in matters where there are sophisticated or complex financial or legal issues. We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, legal training, ethics, integrity and personal performance, and to providing a comfortable, confidential and calm legal experience.
