Every Family Matter is Unique
Pursuing a divorce or separation may be the most difficult choice you have ever made or had made for you. It is important to have an advocate who is a good fit for you and your situation. I will take the time to understand you and the unique needs of your family, tailoring my approach to fit your family dynamic.
The situation is difficult enough without having the lawyers making it worse. You were a family and, if you have young children, you will still have to operate like a family after the divorce or separation. My job is to make things better for you and your family by finding a resolution for your problems, not creating or aggravating them.
During this trying time, you need an advocate who knows you and the circumstances of your case and who will promptly answer your questions and assuage your concerns. When you contact me, you can expect a response the same day and counsel that is based upon my sound knowledge of your circumstances.
