We have litigated all types of family law disputes, including complex business valuation and property division, child custody, spousal support, paternity, and international move-aways.

We take a thoughtful, cost-conscious, and strategic approach to litigation. We thoroughly evaluate the merits of every new family law matter and provide you with a candid assessment — of the issues, the possible outcomes, the timelines, and the costs (financial, familial, emotional). We discuss your goals, your constraints, and what “success” looks like to you.

Then, we partner with you to develop a strategy designed to get you there as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. We always try to find a way to settle cases whenever possible. Sometimes it’s not possible, for a variety of reasons. In those instances, we prepare a thoughtful pre-trial strategy designed the gather the witnesses and evidence you need. We work with forensics, evaluators, and other experts at every step along the way. If settlement remains elusive, we’ve assembled your team, we’ve prepared your case, and we’re ready for trial.

In short, we are experienced, methodical, and aggressive litigators with a big-picture mindset. Our singular focus is to get you to a resolution so you can get on with your life.
