Negotiating your way through a family law case can be difficult, whether it is a divorce, a proceeding regarding allocation of significant decision-making responsibilities, parenting time, a child support or maintenance issue, or any other family law matter. Your relationship with your children and your financial stability can depend on the outcome.

With decades of litigation experience, I am ready to help.

As a father, I understand the importance of a parent’s relationship with his or her children. Through my law practice and my service to individuals in my community, I have seen firsthand how a bad result in a family law matter can have a negative impact on people and their families for years! Because there is no “one size fits all” solution to address a client’s concerns, I focus on my client’s individual circumstances, and working together, we can find what needs to be brought to light to achieve the best possible outcome, whether through negotiations or presenting evidence in the courtroom.
