Our mission is to provide high quality legal services which promote the achievement of our clients’ goals and objectives in an ethical and responsible manner without being destructive to their family or others.


We are experienced in complex family law matters, ranging from paternity actions and restraining order matters to complex divorce and post-divorce issues. We provide a range of options to you to fit your needs and your goals, including traditional litigation, limited scope representation, collaborative divorce, and mediation or arbitration services.

We also provide estate planning services, including wills, living trusts, probate minimization/avoidance vehicles, incapacitation planning (health care and financial powers of attorney and living wills) and beneficiary designation advice.

In addition, we help our business clients with matters including LLC formation, contracts, debt collection, landlord-tenant issues, employee handbooks, litigation and other critical business issues.
