I have a family law practice, because family law
matters are enormously important to my clients. I work determinedly to
support my clients through the process.
My usual fee agreement calls for a client deposit with billing on an
hourly basis. In some cases, I offer representation on a flat fee basis,
exclusive of any costs that may be incurred such as court filing fees.
Examples of family law matters I handle include:
- Divorce (also known as dissolution of marriage)
- Prenuptial agreements
- Property Distribution
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Complex Custody and Move-away cases
- Debt Division
- High net-worth Divorce
- Restraining orders
- Spousal support (also known as maintenance)
- Modification of Custody, Child Support, and Maintenance Orders
Owing to the substantial cost, time and stress
that can accompany family law cases, my clients generally prefer
negotiated resolutions to trial. I work tenaciously on behalf of clients
in mediation to achieve favorable negotiated agreements. But sometimes
good faith negotiated settlements cannot be reached. While my family law
practice emphasizes practical, cost-effective solutions, I draw upon my
trial experience when it is necessary to take your matter to court.
In high net worth divorces, I assist clients in such matters as asset
valuation, property appraisals, retirement funds, property distribution,
and dissolutions, sales and reorganizations of partnerships, limited
liability corporations, corporations, and closely held corporations.
