Family law covers a wide area and will touch the lives of many.

Divorce is an example and while it is never pleasant, there are ways of dealing with the emotional and financial issues that can help people move on with their lives. Our lawyers are familiar with things like collaborative solutions that allow the parties to resolve their differences informally and inexpensively. If the proceedings involve children, we can also work with you to obtain suitable custody and parenting arrangements.

It is also worthwhile to consider potential issues in advance and plan with things like pre-nuptial agreements. These types of agreements can help a relationship start on the right foot with full and frank discussion and transparency.

Family law isn’t always about looking at worst cases. Lifetime highlights like adoptions are exciting events but heavily bureaucratic. We can help ensure that all the paperwork is done as efficiently as possible.

Elder law issues are increasingly common, including handling the affairs of individuals who may not be able to deal with them on their own.

In addition to the services mentioned elsewhere on this page, we also provide help with wills, powers of attorney, real estate and corporate planning which can often be connected to the resolution of family matters.
