The divorce process is often traumatic. Everything you have is at stake. I am a sole practitioner and as your divorce attorney will personally handle all matters for you. You will not be shuffled off to an associate or paralegal.

Complicated Divorces

A divorce attorney must be prepared to address many different subjects. Whether it’s a business valuation, discovery of secret investments, psychological evaluations, pension or profit sharing plans, restorative spousal support, or estate planning, experience counts. Knowing highly skilled experts to support your interests is crucial. Most divorces end as a no fault divorce with a Separation Agreement, in Mediation, or in Court. I am skilled in bringing together the elements of your case to effectively represent you in complicated divorce settings.

Voluntary Agreements

Separation Agreements

Some couples are able to voluntarily reach agreement on the terms of their divorce. Child custody, child support, visitation, spousal support, and the division of assets may all be addressed in these agreements. This is the preferred manner in which to resolve such issues. However, many people find that they are presented with far reaching decisions at a time in their life, which, at best, is unstable. When the agreement is signed, it cannot be changed, unless the other party consents. You must understand what your choices are. With years of experience as a divorce lawyer, I am prepared to help you through this quagmire. Having represented both husbands and wives, I can assist you by providing prospective and analysis to the critical issues you face.

Premarital Agreements

Some people, usually those who have been previously married and have acquired substantial assets, enter into agreements before a marriage to determine the terms of separation, should the marriage fail or when a spouse dies. Premarital Agreements offer the ability to solve many issues before the marriage is created. These agreements are normally complicated and uniquely bring their own problems to be resolved. Like Separation Agreements, they cannot be changed without the consent of the other person. As your attorney, I am able to both advise you as to the implications of your choices and also handle the negotiations on your behalf.


As a divorce attorney with many years of experience, I seek to provide insight to guide my clients to fair settlements, if possible. On the other hand, I am skilled and ready to do battle in court on your behalf as necessary.
