I practice in all areas of family law including divorce, custody, child support, adoption, grandparent rights, and domestic violence protective orders. Most often, family law matters are highly sensitive and emotionally drafting. I encourage my Clients to participate in a discussion about their individual circumstances and I offer advice and information based on my vast experience and pertinent laws and case law. I am candid with my Clients, providing information not only about the project expense of the divorce, but also explaining if there are any red flags in the matter that I anticipate having to work through. Further, I encourage reasonableness when it comes to family law matters – although a Client might be going through a bitter divorce and/or custody battle, satisfying a need for revenge is not productive. If there are children involved, we will repeatedly discuss and take into account what is in the best interest of the children. I will encourage and assist my Clients in making reasonable decisions with regard to their legal situation. My intention is that at the conclusion of our initial meeting and throughout our relationship, my Client will feel comfortable and willing to discuss the specifics of their situation, respect my opinions and strategy and feel, in turn, respected by me.
