Moving Forward Together.
We are here to guide our clients through divorce where there are complicated legal and financial issues, and we strive to empower our clients to help them move forward with their lives. In order to do so, our decision making starts with the question “What’s best for our client?” While important, we believe the essence of family law is not just about crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s, but making sure our clients are able to make educated decisions that impact their future, and steering clients away from decisions that they may come to regret. Our goal is to serve our clients really well over a long period of time, consistent with what is in our clients’ best interest. We believe that is the best way to build our reputation, our relationship with clients, and our business.
