Our approach is twofold; we prepare for trial but always work towards settlement. We will explain your rights so that you are fully prepared during settlement negotiations. If you cannot reach a compromise with the opposing party, we will then prepare you for a court hearing or trial.
We offer options to resolving family law issues. Our select clientele receive individualized attention, with special emphasis on their goals and needs. We take the time to listen to you and explain your rights.
