Our Legal Practice Areas

Divorce: Ending a marriage can be painful and confusing, but you don't have to face divorce alone. By working with a skilled attorney, you can ensure that your rights are respected even when you and your spouse have deep disagreements on issues from property division to child custody.

Custody: No matter what changes your family is going through, your child or children deserve a happy and healthy childhood. One of the most important tasks in a divorce is determining which responsibilities fall to which parent, as well as who will make important decisions about medical treatment, school placement, religious upbringing and many other questions that only parents can answer.

Alimony: In some circumstances, the financial relationship between spouses can continue for years after a marriage has ended. For a dependent spouse, alimony — also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance — can be an important form of income that provides stability during a period of change. For the supporting spouse, alimony can feel like an unfair burden. Whether you are in a position to pay or receive alimony, our goal is to represent your interests and help you find a fair and sustainable arrangement.

Child support: Divorced parents with children often maintain a financial relationship until their children are grown. This can be an intimidating fact to contemplate when facing divorce, but it's helpful to keep in mind that the underlying goal of child support payments is to help ensure that your children have the resources they need to thrive. We help our clients assert their interests and carefully document their finances so that they pay or receive the child support amount appropriate to their circumstances under the law.

Paternity: Fatherhood comes with both rights and responsibilities. In order to enjoy those rights or to enforce those responsibilities, it's crucial to legally establish the biological relationship between a father and his child through DNA testing. Once a properly trained medical technician has performed this test, we will help you use this information to settle legal disputes relating to child custody, child support, inheritance and other issues.

Domestic violence: Everyone has right to feel safe, especially with their loved ones. If you have experienced violence of fear that you might, we can help you use the legal system to put space between you and the other party as you work to resolve the deeper issues that have led anger and violence. If you are the subject of a domestic violence injunction or restraining order, we can also help ensure that you are not unfairly deprived of access to your home or your children.

Criminal defense: Criminal charges can have life-changing consequences, from reputational damage to huge fines and years in prison. If you've been charged with a misdemeanor or felony, we will work tirelessly to minimize the impact of these charges on your life. In some cases that will mean seeking to have the charges dropped entirely; when that is not an option, we will seek reduced charges or a reduced sentence.

Auto accidents: Every vehicle on the road is a dangerous machine, and there's no way to predict when someone else in traffic will make a negligent mistake. From scrapes and bruises to catastrophic injuries such as amputation or paralysis, we can help you seek justice for your injuries through financial compensation.

Personal injury: If you have been injured due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The legal system cannot restore your health, but it can provide some justice. From slip-and-fall accidents to defective products, we can help you hold a negligent party accountable.

Wrongful death: Losing a loved one is a tragedy, and that loss is especially painful when the death was caused by negligence. We will work to hold the negligent party accountable in order to offset the monetary damage incurred by your tragic loss.

Estate planning: It's not pleasant to think about what the world will look like after you are gone, but a little bit of planning today can save your loved ones a lot of headache down the road. A thoroughly written will or trust will save your spouse and/or children from having to deal with the expensive and time-consuming probate process.
