Practice Areas

Divorce & Family Law, Bankruptcy Law, Wills, and Real Estate Law

Divorce & Family Law

If you are going through a divorce or involved in a family court case, you are likely in a position you never expected to be in. Emotions run high and you need a steady hand that will efficiently, compassionately and competently work to protect your rights as a spouse or parent.

Bankruptcy Law

Many people see bankruptcy as an end to their financial future. In reality, bankruptcy can be the beginning of a new financial future. If you are drowning in debt, having trouble paying your bills, or being harassed by creditors,  speak with a lawyer today about filing for bankruptcy.

Real Estate Law

My goal is to make the sale or purchase of your home as stress free as possible. I will protect your interests in what may be the largest financial transaction of your life, communicate with you throughout the process, and make sure that you are getting the best possible service.

Wills & General Matters

Whether handling general legal matters, planning for your future, or arranging for the future of your beneficiaries, we can help you with wills or other general legal advice.

Fees & Retainers

Family law cases are billed hourly and a retainer is provided by the client as a fund from which those hourly fees are deducted. The retainer is based upon an estimate of what the cost should be to process the case. It is generally not possible to predict the total number of hours that would be necessary as it could vary greatly depending upon the facts and circumstances of your case.

During the initial consultation, I will evaluate your situation and provide you with a retainer amount that fits your specific circumstances. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
