You have the power to make it a win-win.

Divorce is tough both emotionally and financially. We understand the complexities of families in crisis. We are dedicated to helping our clients identify and set realistic goals to then aggressively pursue legal strategies to achieve them. Our work is focused not only on results but also on compassionately guiding our clients through the process.  


We have been practicing family law for a combined total of nearly 30 years. It is all we do! Our experience and expertise in the area of family law allows us to effectively help our clients go through divorce or other family law situation like parentage or adoption.  We provide an honest evaluation of our client' case and believe in open communication.  Our training in settlement procurement and negotiation techniques makes our settlement efforts more effective. More than 90% of all family law cases settle at some point, we strive to settle early.



Aggressive representation does not mean wasting attorney fees on unnecessary emotionally-driven motions and contentious approach to the case. In our view, it means tenacious smart litigation strategy and finding paths to a settlement while focusing on achieving our clients' objectives. We are no-nonsense litigators with a lot of heart. We offer concrete creative solutions to shorten the duration of a family law case and ensure that our clients can choose the best options for them and their families.  We have substantial experience litigating family law cases, including complex child custody cases, Marvin-type (stemming from cohabitation), and difficult same-sex (LGBTQ) divorce & parenting matters. 




Mediation is most effective when parties are open to a dialogue, are willing to be honest, and transparent. As an attorney-mediators with expertise in family law, we help parties in distress and in conflict come to a mutually respected agreement. Conflict can be very constructive when a neutral facilitates a dialogue and helps the parties discover new ways, new solutions, new perspectives on each other.  Mediation allows divorcing spouses to reach agreements that are truly in the best interest of their children and themselves. As mediators, through our compassionate approach, we empower our clients to make the best decisions for themselves and their children. We have created three different packages to help you resolve your divorce through the use of mediation.


We believe in everyone having full excess to the courts and to effective representation. We understand that at times, clients want our help only in particular areas of their cases. We know how to effectively unbundle our services to help those who need it. We offer advice, assistance with planning and strategizing, preparation of documents (see our fees), or mediating issue by issue in your divorce or family law matter.

“Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV
