Family Law

Relationships among friends, and associates in the workplace play important roles in our lives. Yet, no other relationships have the significance of those with our families, which literally shape not only the present, but also the future.

The dynamics of all families change subtly or radically over time, whether it involves marriage, civil unions, divorce, domestic violence, questions of paternity or even the birth of a child or adoption.

An experienced divorce and family law attorney can provide trusted advice and guidance to both men and women when divorce threatens to shatter the foundations of your family, when domestic violence endangers you and your children when a juvenile is at risk or when you need help to protect your rights concerning a full range of domestic conflicts or family related issues. Choosing the right lawyer is so important, it can have an impact on the rest of your life.
