We believe the best solution for many clients is to reach an agreement with their spouses, rather than litigating the issues in court. Divorce litigation is expensive, often is emotionally wrenching, and increases hostilities between the parties. We have negotiation and mediation skills and use them to find solutions to complex family law matters.

However, if litigation is necessary, our family law attorneys do not hesitate to take an assertive approach and pursue our clients’ interests in court. We interview the witnesses, obtain necessary documents, secure expert witnesses, utilize private investigators and take such other actions as may be necessary to prepare a case for trial.

We will take on any family law matter enthusiastically, whether simple or complex, and will give each and every case our individual attention. We will evaluate your case and choose which approach will be in your best interests, whether it is litigation, mediation, arbitration, negotiation, or collaborative law. We will pursue the best solution for you and for your children.
