Family Law

We have an extensive family law practice. We represent individuals in every area of family law and bring a depth of experience that few law firms can rival. Below is a description of the specific areas of family law practice in which we serve clients.

Adoption

This is an area of law practice that we refer to as “happy law.” Adoption is a great blessing for couples who desire to raise children whose parents are unable to care for them. It also benefits children by placing them homes in which they are both loved and wanted.

Adoptions are subject to a variety of strict procedural and substantive requirements. Careful handling prevents negative outcomes for parents and children. We have participated extensively in every aspect of the adoption process, representing the interests of adoptive parents, adoptees, and biological parents. We have also done many intra-family adoptions, including step-parent and grandparent adoptions.

Providing legal services in connection with adoptions is a profound privilege.

 

Custody & Visitation

Custody, time-sharing, and visitation matters are among the most challenging and difficult legal issues that clients face. If there is one area in which the skill and experience level of an attorney is critical, this is it. These issues arise in divorce actions after marriages have been dissolved and in circumstances where the parents or caregivers have never been married. It is in this area where the interests of parents, children, siblings, and family members are most deeply impacted.

Most everyone is familiar with the concept of “the best interest of the child.” What that means in a given context can often be the subject strong disagreement and, sometimes, bitter dispute. We have been involved in many engagements involving custody, time-sharing or visitation and frequently work with counselors and others to assist the court in determining how to allocate time with a child between his or her parents and family members.

 

Divorce

No one enters into marriage with the expectation of divorce, but we live in a fallen world and life often becomes complicated. Without a doubt, one of the most difficult situations that people face in life is the ending of a marriage. By the time someone comes to see us, there has usually been a breakdown in communication between spouses. The first step we take in a potential or pending divorce matter is to help our client determine whether divorce is the best or only option. When we determine that it is, our goal is to maximize protection of our client’s interests while minimizing the harm that inevitably accompanies divorce.

Once we formulate a strategy with our client, we focus on providing skilled and vigorous advocacy to protect their interests. When it is not possible to reach an agreement on an issue, it is important that you be represented by skilled and experienced courtroom advocates. That is one of our greatest strengths.

Last Will & Testament

For many people, estate planning is one of those tasks that is easy to put off.  It simply does not make it to the top of their To-Do lists. However, there is probably a no better illustration of the old adage that ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of Cure’ than estate planning. For most people, “estate planning” means obtaining a Last Will & Testament, a Power of Attorney and an advance directive for medical decisions.  Compared to the time and expense required to do simple estate planning, the return on investment is dramatic.
