Ending a marriage or relationship can be one of the most difficult events in a person’s life, especially when there are children involved. I practice family law, because I want to help my clients successfully navigate the legal system, understand their rights, and strategically work through critical financial, and/or personal decisions within an undoubtedly emotional context.
