We approach each case with a high level of personal attention, continuity, responsiveness, and cost efficiency.

We have an experience in analyzing complicated financial situations, particularly complex tax and business valuation issues.

We handle custody and visitation issues with skill and sensitivity, excel at negotiating and drafting premarital, postnuptial, and settlement agreements.

Negotiation and settlement are almost always preferable to trial. To that end, the firm takes a determined approach to resolve legal issues during settlement conferences.

Solid legal research, responsiveness to client needs, and our ability to effectively communicate with opposing counsel can often break through roadblocks to settlement. In case of a trial, clients can be confident they will receive strong representation in court.

If client’s case does not go as expected at the trial level, we also offer litigation at the appellate level.
