Going to court to address family-related legal issues can be a stressful and intimidating situation, and a person may be worried that if they say or do the wrong thing, they may be unable to maintain important relationships with their children or other family members. Fortunately, with the right attorney on their side, a person can make sure they understand the best way to approach their case and the steps they can take to resolve any disputes that they may encounter.

Our firm works to protect the rights and interests of family members who are involved in family court cases. We advise our clients on the laws that apply to them, the requirements they will need to meet, the procedures they will need to follow, and the steps they can take to address legal issues effectively. We believe in providing compassionate guidance while advocating on behalf of our clients to help them achieve their goals.


We work with parents who are looking to provide a loving home for a child, ensuring that they meet all requirements during the adoption process. We can assist with private adoptions, international adoptions, stepparent adoptions, and more.

Child Custody

In most family law cases, parents will be encouraged to share joint managing conservatorship of their children. We can help create child custody agreements that address legal custody while ensuring that children will have visitation time with both parents.

Child Support

Whether they are married, divorced, or separated, parents are required to provide for their children's financial needs. Our firm can help establish child support orders that calculate a parent's obligations based on their income and financial resources.

Couples who plan to end their marriage will need to make decisions about a number of complex issues. Determining how to resolve disputes can be difficult, especially if the breakdown of a couple's relationship has led to heated disputes. Legal representation by an experienced attorney can be crucial, regardless of whether a divorce is expected to be simple and amicable or complicated and contentious. A skilled lawyer can help a person understand the best approach to take while ensuring that they address all legal and financial concerns correctly.

Our firm provides representation in contested or uncontested divorce cases, and we can help our clients determine whether divorce mediation may be an effective solution or whether litigation may be necessary.

Spousal Maintenance

In some divorce cases, one spouse may be eligible to receive financial support from the other spouse to ensure that they will be able to meet their needs following their divorce. We work with our clients to address this issue and ensure that they will have the financial resources they need.


Marital Property Division

Divorcing spouses may own multiple types of property, and they will need to determine how to divide their marital assets and debts. We work with our clients to address the division of assets such as furniture, vehicles, real estate property, business interests, and retirement accounts.
