Experience

I opened my law practice in 1991 with an emphasis on Family Law. Since that time I have dedicated my practice to handling only family law issues.  This includes divorce, separation, custody, child support, property division, temporary orders and other family law issues.  I have helped thousands of clients resolve their Family Law issues including appearing in court for motion hearings, trials and other types of hearings.  I have helped clients through the mediation process to resolve their disputes without the courts intervention.    

I work closely with each client to ensure they fully understand the issues in their case and the game plan necessary to obtain their desired results.  My pro-active and no-nonsense approach means I will work with the client to identify his/her needs right from the start of the case.  I will identity any issues which may interfere with the client’s intended results and explain each of these issues to the client at every stage of the proceedings.  The client and I are a team and by working together, we can navigate towards their desired results while keeping costs down.

With 29 years of experience, there been no case too difficult for me.  I have experience with many types of family law cases from highly contested divorces with complex financial issues, property isssues, custody and visitation disputes, domestic violence, support to less complex cases and uncontested divorces.

 

Effective and aggressive WHEN PURSUING YOUR INTEREST.

I believe in resolving disputes without litigation if at all possible. However, if litigation becomes necessary, I am prepared to execute an effective and aggressive plan. I always actively pursue my client's interest. I pride myself on being attentive and responsive to my client and their needs throughout this process.  I will answer all of your questions, as I care about your problems and will return your telephone calls and emails promptly. 

"It is my philosophy to ease the stress involved in a Divorce or Family Law matter."

I strive for a fair result for all my clients. That means your assets are divided fairly, support is set at the right amount based on all facts and the needs of the children and your relationship with your children is preserved.

 

Results Based on Goals, EXECUTED EFFICIENTLY

These results can be negotiated, but if the other party is unreasonable or refuses to settle, I have the experience to be an aggressive advocate who can go the course to protect your interests. I try to keep your legal costs low by doing things right the first time around, moving your case forward to completion and I am always considerate of your ultimate goals.

When choosing an Attorney there are many options.  You should always meet with an attorney before hiring their services.  Some questions to ask yourself are: 

•    Will this Attorney be committed to you?
•    Will this Attorney care about my outcome?
•    Does this Attorney know what is important to fight about and what important to you?
•    Can this Attorney help me get to the other side safely and with dignity?
