Our family law practice covers a wide variety of matters, including divorce, complaints for parentage, and abuse prevention. In some cases, our work begins when a client is thinking about divorce and just wants information about planning and what to expect. We develop strategies and provide counsel addressed to each client’s individual needs. If a matter progresses and a complaint for divorce is filed in court, we are experienced trial attorneys who can represent you at scheduled case manager’s conference and, if necessary, court hearings. We deal directly with opposing counsel and receive all court notices on your behalf. Our family law practice also includes parentage actions where a parent can seek to be awarded parental rights and responsibilities or ask for parent-child contact. Finally, we proudly represent clients in Relief from Abuse matters and civil Anti-Stalking and Sexual Abuse complaints. If you have been served with an emergency Temporary Relief from Abuse Order or Temporary Anti-Stalking and Sexual Abuse Order, you must act quickly to secure counsel and understand your rights.
