Family Law

Going through a divorce is a difficult experience, and it can be compounded when there is a custody battle over the children, when you own significant property and assets, and when you own a business. Our family law attorneys are here to help you get through this incredibly emotional legal challenges and emerge from the divorce in as strong a position as possible.

Another consequential area of law that is incredibly intertwined with family law matters has to do with matters of probate and guardianship. After you pass away, your heirs will need to handle the disposition of your estate in probate court (unless you structure your plan to specifically avoid probate court). In certain situations, it might make sense to initiate a guardianship proceeding to gain control over minors or incapacitated adults. Whether you’re planning for the future or have immediate needs, we’d love to help.
