Summary

At my firm all clients get my personal attention. Family law matters can be emotional and I am aware of the support a person needs during such a trying time. You will never be shuttled to another attorney or support staff when working with my firm. You will receive personalized attention specific to your sensitive case needs. I give free initial consultations where we can use the facts to formulate the best legal strategy for your family. Family law is all I do and it shows in my work on your behalf.
