Many legal matters involving custody, property distribution, child support, and alimony arise when a marriage is dissolved. As your legal representatives, we have the experience to understand the unique difficulties that may arise and the expertise and creativity to help you resolve your disputes. We also have the experience and ability to represent our clients in seeking custody arrangements and parenting access schedules that are favorable to them and in the best interests of their minor children.

We do not just walk away once a divorce or custody matter is finalized. The firm also provides legal representation to our former clients and new clients in post-judgment matters. Financial circumstances and the needs of their children may change, making it necessary to modify current orders regarding alimony, child support, custody, or visitation.
