Family Law and Guardianship
Divorce and separation of unmarried domestic partners is one of the most difficult situations a person faces in their life. Handling these cases effectively involves technical knowledge and know-how as well as empathy and understanding of the personal challenges faced by clients. In today’s environment, there are often interested family participants beyond husband and wife. These include stepparents, grandparents, and relatives who have developed a strong parental relationship with children who are not their own.
We have addressed a variety of familial situations through adoption, guardianship, third party custody and creative parenting plans.
Navigating the legal system in the family law area requires experience and creativity. The courts are backlogged with cases and having the right attorney who knows how to navigate the system can make the difference between frustration and resolution. We frequently utilize mediation and negotiation as a first step and the great majority of our family cases are settled outside of court. We have the skill, expertise, and respect in the legal community which is required to negotiate effective settlements of family cases.
