Family Law

Our family law lawyers are experienced trial lawyers who are committed to providing excellent legal representation with compassion and understanding to our clients in divorce, contested custody, and complex property division and valuation matters.

However, when amicable resolution is not possible, we vigorously represent our clients in court and will take cases to trial when necessary.

Many family law matters involve complex business and real estate issues. Working together with our real estate, business transactions, estate and commercial litigation attorneys, we are able to handle the full-range of legal issues that clients may face in family law matters.
