Divorce Litigation

You may not have the opportunity to choose a process other than divorce litigation as the way your marriage ends. Litigation can be the most effective process by which to provide yourself, and your children, with personal and financial protection.

Appellate Practice

Each party has the right to appeal a decision of the trial court. The appellate process requires persuasive legal writing and oral argument skills that are essential when guiding client’s legal matters through the appellate process.

Child Custody

Our lawyers can assist you in addressing how to create a plan that grows with the changing developmental needs of your children over time, and how to handle future challenges with your children that may arise as unmarried or remarried parents.

Divorce Choice™

Divorce Choice™ is a process alternative to litigation that provides you with the flexibility to choose from among all of your options in creating a process that meets the needs of your family.

Premarital Agreements

Only prior to your marriage can you and your fiancé enter into an agreement that allows for a transfer of assets during your lifetime following the marriage; to provide for what your spouse will receive if you pre-decease them while married; and, to provide for what you and your spouse will receive in the event that your marriage ends in divorce.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is the process of  arranging, during a person’s life, for the management and disposal of that person’s estate after their passing. This includes minimizing gift, estate, generation skipping transfer, and income tax. Following a divorce, a review of estate planning is essential.

Adoption Law

Adopting a child can be a significant and joyful undertaking. By formally adopting a child, you are assuming all rights and responsibilities of caring for that child as though you were the child’s biological parent.

Mediation & Facilitation

Mediation and Facilitation are processes in which the parties engage a neutral to assist them in reaching an agreement. The extent of authority bestowed upon the neutral determines whether the process is a mediation or facilitation.
