Family Law

  • Divorce

  • Custody & Visitation
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Division of Marital Assets

If you are contemplating divorce, or your spouse is seeking a divorce, we can help. Beyond just the legal end of your marriage, you may be facing tough issues such as child and spousal support, custody and visitation of the children, and the untangling and distribution of marital property. We have extensive experience helping families craft agreements on these issues that take their particular circumstances into account. In rare instances where our efforts meet with unreasonable or unfair parties, we bring significant litigation experience to court, and we will fight for what you deserve.

Estate Planning

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Probate
  • Estate Administration

It is never too early to start planning for the future. Having a comprehensive estate plan will help to protect your property from over-taxation, prevent court interference with the distribution of your property, prevent family disputes, carry out your wishes, and most of all give you the piece of mind that comes from knowing that your loved ones will be provided for. Do not leave all that for which you have worked so hard to chance.

Consumer Protection

  • Fraud
  • Misrepresentation
  • Lemon Law Cases

A portion of our practice has always been dedicated to helping consumers that have been the victims of unfair and illegal business practices. If you have suffered losses due to questionable business practices you have the right under the Consumer Protection Act to seek recovery. We have significant experience negotiating and litigating claims under this act. You may feel taken advantage of, but you should not be embarrasses to hold people responsible. We can help.

Landlord / Tenant Disputes

We routinely work with landlords and tenants to resolve disputes involving leases, deposits, and damage. Whether your case ends up in court or we are able to resolve the matter outside of court, we will work hard to see that a fair and equitable solution to your disagreements is achieved.

Business & Commercial Contracts

For our business clients we provide advice and representation on the negotiation, drafting, and execution of contracts. We also provide aggressive litigation services for our clients that have suffered a breach of contractual obligations.

We take pride in offering a general practice firm and being able to assist our clients with any legal problem with which they are faced. If you have questions about these, or any other area of law, do not hesitate to contact us.
