How Can We Help?

Our priority is providing the guidance you need to seek positive resolutions in a wide array of marital dissolution matters, including:

  • Divorce for business owners: If a client (or his or her spouse) owns a business, we can assist with determining its value and fairly dividing it while keeping the company running.

  • Divorce for high-asset clients: We counsel high-net-worth clients on the sophisticated legal issues associated with extensive assets.

  • Parenting time and allocation of parental responsibilities: Our firm works hard to seek a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of both the parents and the children. We know how to stand up for our clients' rights to have meaningful relationships with their children.

  • Child support and alimony: Our attorney helps ensure that children are provided for after the end of the parents’ relationship. We also represent spouses seeking spousal support/alimony and those obligated to pay it.

  • Property division: We handle the division of business property, the family home, retirement accounts, pets, and all other assets and debts.

  • Estate Plan Updates: Your estate plan should reflect your current family structure. Allow us to help you make the necessary changes to your will, trusts, and other documents.



Guidance Through Contested & Uncontested Divorces

Spouses who want to end their marriages must fully understand all of their options, including whether they want to pursue a contested or an uncontested divorce.

A contested divorce may prove necessary when spouses are unable or unwilling to reach an agreement regarding any divorce-related issues. On the other hand, an uncontested divorce may be pursued when both spouses are able to agree on all issues associated with the end of their marriage. No matter which path you choose, we’re here to help.

Discover if Alternative Dispute Resolution is Right for You

Our attorney has the unique ability to screen your case and determine what is and isn't feasible for how to proceed. His advice is backed by extensive experience and intended to help you find the best method possible to resolve your divorce.
