Providing Clients With Knowledge And Insight
I am committed to providing clients with the knowledge that they need at every stage of the legal process. By offering comprehensive guidance, I work to help clients make informed decisions regarding
- Legal separation
- Divorce and related issues like property division
- Allocation of parental responsibilities (formerly known as child custody) and related issues like paternity and child support
- Orders of protection in family law disputes involving domestic violence
Working directly with clients, I help them understand their options and achieve their goals for themselves and their family. By focusing on their best interest and the needs of their children, I can help them work toward a brighter future.
