Divorce cases can result in high-cost litigation and prolonged disputes. If your goal is to minimize the time or costs of a divorce or other family law action, we can help. Our Family Law practice is focused on successfully resolving these disputes on a fair basis, while remaining mindful of the costs and commitments of our clients.
Our Approach to Divorce Cases
Divorce is stressful for all parties, including children. Whether your divorce has come quickly or is the result of long-standing problems, you don’t want the process to drag on, prolonging the uncertainty.
Divorce cases can be contested or uncontested. Every case is contested until there is a written settlement agreement signed by both parties in place. Contested cases can be settled at any point in the litigation prior to the final decision. Cases that are not settled will end up in a trial before a judge or jury.
With sound legal guidance from an experienced attorney and the support of a caring, professional legal team, you can arrive at a divorce settlement agreement and a new phase of life. Allow us to guide you through the process in a manner that is mindful of your resources and your goals.

What Options Do I Have?
We take a comprehensive approach to divorce, ensuring that all of your concerns are addressed and that both immediate and future needs are met. We seek solutions that minimize the potential damage of an extended legal dispute and the costs of divorce court. For many people, mediation or a negotiated settlement are better alternatives than resolving divorce issues in court. We have helped many clients build agreements through mediation or out-of-court settlement.
The primary reason for this is that a negotiated settlement affords more control than going to court, where the final decision lies with a judge. However, if an agreement cannot be reached through mediation or negotiation, we will vigorously defend our clients’ interests in court to ensure a fair divorce settlement. And, we have many successful results for our clients in court.
