Family Law

When you need a family law attorney, we are here for you. We help clients successfully address the legal issues that affect them most personally.

Family matters, which can be legally complex, are deeply personal and often emotionally charged. To make sound decisions about issues that can have lifelong ramifications, you need the support and understanding of expert counsel and, if necessary, aggressive representation.

Competent, Compassionate Representation

We offer our clients astute legal advice in a compassionate, caring and professional manner that enables them to resolve difficult issues and move on with their lives. We provide experienced representation in:

Often a family legal situation does not end with an agreement or court order; as families grow and change, adjustments may need to be made to accommodate those changes. Therefore, our representation does not end at the negotiating table or in court. We stand beside you throughout the legal process.

A Trusted Advisor

In fact, our interest goes beyond the legal issues you may be facing today. Our history of cultivating lifelong – sometimes, multi-generational – relationships with our clients reflects our commitment to earning your trust.

When you are embroiled in a legal dispute, your adversaries need to know that you have the will and ability to bring the matter to trial if it cannot be resolved through other means. If the matter does go to trial, you want an experienced and successful trial attorney on your side to protect your interests, contain your risk and exposure, and improve your chances of a favorable outcome.

The Right Firm for the Job

Our focus is on arbitrating and litigating legal disputes for our clients. Although many firms say they litigate, they do not always have much actual trial experience. We work hard to settle disputes before they get to court, but our track record shows that we do not shy away from the courtroom when it is in our clients' best interest to litigate.

Thorough Trial Preparation

Although the trial is the most visible part of litigation, it is the work outside the trial that largely determines the outcome in court. Thorough case preparation is critical to any successful lawsuit, including research of the law, document review and organization, and witness interviews. Our track record is the result of exhaustive trial preparation and skillful litigation strategies.

Serious Courtroom Experience

Whether your suit is civil or commercial, in federal or state court, before administrative or regulatory agencies, or in front of arbitral bodies, we can help. Our experience includes:

Alternatives to Litigation

While there are times when litigation is unavoidable – or even desirable, often it is most expeditious to resolve matters outside court. In fact, our discovery skills and pretrial tactics often spur adversaries to seek favorable settlement terms in lieu of going to court. When trial is not the best alternative, we are well practiced in settlement negotiations, arbitration, and mediation.

Personal Injury

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries caused by another, our legal system provides methods for obtaining justice. Although legal remedies cannot heal your injuries, they can provide monetary compensation for your medical expenses, loss of earnings and earning capacity, pain and suffering and other non-economic losses.

Experienced In Personal Injury Law

We have successfully represented personal injury victims. Our comprehensive knowledge of state and federal laws governing accidents, insurance and liability has enabled us to win full and fair compensation for our clients in cases that range from wrongful death cases to back and neck injury cases.

Prepared for Trial

While many personal injury cases are resolved through direct negotiations with an insurance company, sometimes a matter cannot be satisfactorily settled without going to court. Should your case require a trial, we may enlist experts in medicine, forensics, engineering or other fields to aggressively represent your legal interests in the courtroom, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve.

Preserve Your Rights – Act Now!

Now is the time to contact us if you have suffered an injury. Since personal injury cases are subject to a statute of limitations that restricts the time you have to file a claim, it is important that you enlist competent legal counsel as soon as possible following an injury.

Your initial consultation is free and without obligation. Should we proceed with a legal case, you will not be charged a fee unless your case is successful. If you or a loved one has been injured, don't delay – contact us today for a free consultation.
