Attorney For Contested Or High-Conflict Divorce
When your marriage started out, your first purchase together may have been a small house in the suburbs. As the years passed and your family grew, things started getting more complicated. Before you knew it, there were investment portfolios, a pension or substantial 401(k) retirement account, a vacation property and possibly even part ownership in a business. Now you are considering divorce and protecting your rights and financial interests in the property settlement will be complicated.

A Lawyer With Strong Experience In Contested Custody Issues
Nothing is more emotional for parents in a divorce than concerns about their children. Some parents forget that nobody “wins” custody. The courts make a decision based on the best interest of the child and both parents are expected to share equal responsibility in raising their children. If you are concerned about a custody battle or visitation rights in your contested divorce, I offer experienced legal counsel and representation to help you resolve complex issues.
I Will Never Push You Into Unnecessary Litigation
It seems that everyone knows someone with a horror story about a divorce that went wrong. In my experience, working toward a settlement is almost always the best solution and certainly what the courts expect the parties to strive for. However, there may be times when taking a case to trial is the only way to protect your rights. If so, I am an experienced, effective litigator with a strong record of successful outcomes on behalf of my clients.
