We approach every client and every case with the understanding that divorce and family law is a very stressful, emotional and complex process. The rights, needs and goals of our clients take center stage and are prioritized above all. We are grateful that our clients choose our firm from among the many available options and never forget that without our clients we would not have a practice or business.


You can’t fake being a divorce and family law attorney.  Without passion and appreciation of the impact that we have as family attorneys on the lives of our clients, it is impossible to be successful in this area of law. We also do not dilute our practice or our skills by working in any other areas of law. Our exclusivity and the love for what we do allows our legal team to go the extra mile and to exceed expectations when it really counts.


It’s critical for clients and attorneys to form a strong relationship based on trust and a foundation of common principles. There are many complex legal and emotional issues that we may face together and having a strong bond is required for us to be able to help our clients through this difficult time. We focus on building our relationships with clients and are careful to select only the cases where we can truly be effective and make a difference.


We understand that the process of divorce and family law can be both burdensome and very expensive. Working quickly towards a resolution, exploring all possible options and keeping attorney fees low, help clients and cases to move through the legal process.  Our processes, systems and billing policies are designed to help our firm work smarter and more efficiently within a traditional industry.
