Divorce And Family Law

Family law is a broad category that encompasses legal issues related to marriage and children, including divorce, child custody disputes, child support, property division, alimony, adoption and more. These issues can be technically complicated and emotionally difficult.

Our experienced attorney guides clients through their legal options, defends their rights and helps them argue for their interests. We have experience with many complicated issues in divorce, including high-asset property division, and we have helped many people reach the best results they can in these difficult cases.

Personal Injury

If you have been hurt in an accident, you know that medical bills and other expenses can pile up. You may lose wages from the time you are unable to return to work. In cases of permanent injury, you may lose decades of potential income. If your injuries are the result of another party's negligence or wrongful acts, the law says you are entitled to be compensated for your damages through a personal injury lawsuit.

However, successfully pursuing a personal injury lawsuit is not easy. It takes knowledge of the law, determination, and skill in argument and negotiation. We have helped many people recover the compensation they needed in cases involving motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites and other issues.

Estate Planning And Probate

Estate planning and probate are two related areas of the law where a little help from a skilled lawyer can make a big difference. We help people protect their property, provide for their loved ones and build legacies with wills, trusts and other estate planning documents.

We also help people through difficult transitions in the probate process. We help executors and other clients inventory estates, file paperwork and settle affairs in a way that respects their loved one's wishes and helps the next generation.
