Legal Yin and Yang: How Family Law and Estate Planning Work Together Throughout Your Life

Practice Areas

Family Law

Dealing with a legal issue involving your family can be one of the most difficult and emotional experiences of your life. With so much on the line, you need an attorney you can trust to get the best results.


Dissolving a marriage can be a stressful experience, but our staff of legal professionals has the expertise, talent and experience necessary to get you the justice and peace of mind you deserve.

Probate and Wills

Deciding what will happen to your personal possessions after your passing can be a difficult process. However, if you don't take the time to make these decisions now, a court may end up dividing your property.


We can help when a loved one becomes incapacitated through disease or through mental health issues, or when a minor child receives an inheritance.
