Dealing with a family law or personal injury matter is stressful. All of us are busy with our lives and no one wants to add a lawsuit to their "to do" list. Most people have never needed an attorney before and are unsure where to turn or what to do. We provide specialized advice and representation in all areas of family law and personal injury. We thrive on helping you understand your options and how to get the best result for you and your family, either by agreement or in court. So take a breath, relax and contact us to discuss your case and how we can help.
Family Law Services
When spouses divorce, dividing their assets can be complex and frustrating. Regardless of your financial situation, we can help you understand what you are entitled to and how to get it, whether by settlement or in court.
Child Custody and Access
Possession and access orders control how much time you get to spend with your child and your right to make decisions regarding their care. We can help you find a solution that is in the best interest of your children, either by agreement or, when necessary, through litigation.
When a child lives primarily with one parent, the other parent must make payments to help with the child's care. We can help you get the financial assistance your children deserve.
Spousal maintenance is designed to help a spouse maintain their lifestyle, transition to the new, single phase of their life or compensate for certain hardships they may have endured during the marriage. We can help you understand and get what you get the support you deserve.
When circumstances change and previous orders are no longer in the best interest of a child, we can help you in getting the previous orders modified, either by agreement or in court.
To minimize conflict and its harmful impact on children, we can help you and the other parent reach an agreement on how to care for the children.
Prenuptial agreements or "prenups" and postnuptial agreements or "psotnups" allow couples to plan ahead in case they eventually divorce. We can help you set up your marriage contract to reduce time, cost and stress in the event of divorce.
People who live together can agree on how they want to handle their financial relationship. We can help you prepare an agreement to minimize stress and complications in case you later separate.
Independent Legal Advice
If your partner or spouse presents you with a cohabitation agreement, marriage contract or proposed divorce decree, it is vital that you get independent legal advice before you sign. We can help you fully understand your rights before you decide whether to agree.

Personal Injury Services
We handle all types of serious injury and wrongful death cases including:
When handled carelessly, heavy commercial trucks are the most dangerous and devastating vehicles on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, we can help you gather vital evidence and pursue your rights to fair compensation.
Having a child injured by the negligence of someone else is one of the worst experiences a parent can endure. We can help enforce your child's legal right to compensation to help pay for past treatment and allow them to receive future medical care and rehabilitation so they can return to a normal life and to help insure the same thing does not happen to another child.
You are more likely to be seriously hurt in a car wreck than by any other activity. We can help you pursue your claim against the unsafe driver that hurt you to compensate you for what you have endured and so you can receive the medical treatment that lets you return to a normal life.
Sometimes a careless owner, combined with the dangerous nature of certain dogs, leads to tragedy. We can help you pursue a claim against a negligent dog owner for your dog bite injuries, for the fear and trauma of enduring a dog attack, to pay for medical treatment and to help prevent the same thing from happening to someone else in the future.
