Exceptional Representation
When You Need it Most.

Divorce   •   Post-Divorce   •   Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements   •   Child Support & Custody


Divorce and marital conflicts can be painful. But that doesn’t mean it has to get ugly.

We provide exceptional representation to our clients, who often have complex finances and are facing issues which require highly experienced and competent counsel. Thorough preparation, responsiveness, compassion, and strong effective advocacy are the hallmarks of our firm. We believe that great divorce attorneys are advocates who can skillfully litigate a case to trial when necessary. More often, by moving a case proactively and strategically from the outset, great results can be achieved without a risky and costly trial.

We believe the divorce process shouldn’t just be about dissolving your marriage but protecting and building your future.


You deserve representation that’s always looking out for your well-being. That means we’re committed to standing up for you and what’s best for you and your family. We’re here to listen, understand what you’re going through, then effectively and efficiently guide you through what can be a difficult process toward solutions that will help you come out whole and ready to move forward.
