Areas of Practice


The end of a marriage is one of the most difficult and emotional times in a person's life.  With changes in living arrangements, custody, access to children, insulating children from conflict, defusing hostility between you and your partner, acquiring financial security and stability, and ensuring that property is fairly divided, you have a lot of concerns.  We can alleviate those concerns, help you get over the hurdles you face, and successfully resolve matters to leave you in the best position to live your future in contentment and abundance.    

Adoption/second parent adoptions

We successfully navigate the bureaucratic labyrinth of domestic and international adoption proceedings, representing a diverse group of adoptive families, including, private adoptions, step-parent adoptions, and same sex or second parent adoptions. 

custody & parental access

Children come first.  Sometimes that means your children should live with a particular parent instead of another.  Sometimes that means they should live with both parents.  Sometimes that means having a meaningful and impactful relationship with your children even when they live with the other parent.  We work with all sorts of family structures to resolve custody and access issues in the children's best interest.   

prenuptial agreements

Starting a new life together is exciting and fulfilling but is also fraught with risks.  Acknowledging the realistic possibility that your relationship might end is not a sign of a lack of confidence in your partner or the relationship, but rather a mature acknowledgment that the one truth in life is that life changes.  A prenuptial agreement is an important part of estate planning and building a future together.  Our firm gives you a holistic approach, so you and your partner will feel greater security moving forward together.  

financial support and enforcement

Financial support of a spouse, a child, or both, is a reality that must be dealt with when relationships end. Our firm specializes in maximizing or minimizing support orders. 

Sometimes a party will not or cannot meet their obligations under a support order. Penalties for noncompliance may include, income deduction orders, garnishments, seizures of assets, statutory interests, and even incarceration for willfully refusing to pay an order support.  Our firm has successfully prosecuted enforcement proceedings and defended people facing the consequences of nonpayment.  

We know what we're doing.  Let us help you. 

orders of protection/domestic violence matters

Whether you are the victim of domestic violence, or the person accused of a family offense, our firm has extensive experience in Family Court, Supreme Court, and Criminal Court, representing both sides of a domestic violence case.  We will fight to protect you and your rights.  


We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
— Edmund Burke
