Summary

Litigating family law cases can be laden with emotion and uncertainty. I understand that this can be one of the most difficult times of your life – any aspect of a family law case can result in anxiety over subjects like where your children will live, how you will get by financially, whether you will be able to continue living in the manner to which you are accustomed. All are valid, and common, concerns in family law cases. Because this area of law is so delicate, I believe that you deserve the utmost care and service from your attorney. I believe that it is important to be cooperative when working with the other side. I will always strive to create an environment of collaboration and cooperation. However, if working together becomes unrealistic, I am fully prepared to handle your case in court.
