Providing Tailored Solutions Unique To Your Needs

When a couple separates, many decisions must be made. From dividing assets and debts, to determining whether alimony is desired and/or obtainable, as well as, whether your case can be resolved amicably between the parties or require court action. Having an experienced and knowledgeable attorney by your side is crucial. I will take an objective look at your situation, weighing the pros and cons of your case, and provide you with solid advice and potential outcomes. My goal is to guide you in making informed decisions based upon your unique situation and the law. I aim to solve every dispute amicably but will not back down from a challenge.

Things tend to get even more complicated when children are involved. Children are like precious jewels and understandably, everyone wants to do what is in the best interest of their child. Deciding what that looks like is different in every case. I have found that many do not understand the concepts of legal custody, physical custody, joint custody and co-parenting. I can help you understand these concepts so you can make the best decision regarding the care of your child. From divorce and child custody to child support, adoption and even termination of parental rights; I can provide you with the advice you need to determine how to proceed in your case.

In addition, if you need to alter a will or estate plan due to changes in your family structure, I can advise you.
