Effectively Solving Problems

Going through a divorce is a difficult experience that significantly affects your life.  During that process, it is necessary to obtain accurate and complete information in order to make informed, well-thought out decisions.  It is also important to be creative and flexible. While there will be emotional and stressful times during a divorce, it is critical to consistently protect yourself and use this process to build a solid foundation for the future. My goal is to provide sound legal advice that fully addresses your concerns and needs in the most realistic and effective manner possible. I can help with:

  • Parental Responsibility Issues (including the allocation of decision-making for children and the determination of parenting time)
  • Disputes Concerning the Relocation of Children
  • Child Support (and many other financial issues concerning children)
  • The Division of Assets (including the analysis and appropriate treatment of complex or significant assets)
  • Property Settlements
  • Maintenance (known in some jurisdictions as alimony)
  • Debt Allocation
  • Litigation (including hearings and trials)

Working With Clients

I work with clients to identify issues, analyze available options, and develop an appropriate plan of action. In resolving disputes, I encourage clients to take reasonable steps to achieve a fair and appropriate settlement “out of court” that protects the client’s interests and achieves specified goals. If the parties and their attorneys cannot reach such a settlement on their own, there are other options (such as mediation) that should be explored before going to court. If a reasonable settlement cannot be achieved—and if going to court makes sense (practically, legally and economically)—I work with clients to create and implement the most effective litigation strategy possible.
