Practice Areas

Civil Trials and Appeals

We guide you through every step of a civil or business dispute – whether the resolution requires a simple and informal demand letter, a mediated Settlement Agreement, or a full jury trial spanning several days.

Our extensive civil trial experience in both state and federal courts includes contract disputes, landlord/tenant issues, employment disputes, insurance claims, negligent construction, etc.

Divorce and Family Law

Our attorneys have extensive experience in complex dissolution (divorce) actions, including: high-asset and high net income cases; division and valuation of family businesses; inter-state relocation of children; and high conflict cases involving substance abuse or domestic violence. We also handle paternity, grandparent visitation and adoption cases.

While we work to zealously protect our clients' interests, we also understand the importance of maintaining functional relationships between the divorcing parties- especially those who will continue to co-parent their children for years to come.

Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning

Our simple Estate Planning package includes a Will (which may include trust and guardianship provisions for minor children); a General Power of Attorney and Medical Power of Attorney (which allow your loved ones to make decisions for you in the event that you are unable); and a Declaration as to Medical or Surgical Treatment ("living will") if requested.

Personal Injury

We negotiate with insurance companies after an accident or injury to compensate you for your medical expenses, lost income, physical pain and emotional suffering. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, we are willing to take the case to trial.
