Family Law

Family law issues touch the core of your life. Knowledgeable and compassionate guidance can make a difficult experience like divorce less stressful and help you take your next steps with greater confidence and financial security. A family lawyer can also help secure support for your child, bring a new child into your family through guardianship or adoption, or establish your parental rights.

Whether you’re facing the end of your marriage or beginning a new chapter with a child, the last thing you want or need is to be focused on untangling complicated legal processes and ensuring that you’ve adequately protected yourself and your family. That’s where we come in.

Fighting for your rights is just one element of our representation in a family law matter. We’ll also take time to understand your circumstances, provide the information you need to make good decisions and help determine the best course of action for you and your family.

We assist with a wide range of family law matters, including:

Criminal Defense Law

Facing criminal charges can be frightening and disruptive. While “criminal defendant” brings to mind a hardened criminal for many people, the truth is that good people who have made mistakes, acted out of desperation or trusted the wrong person face criminal charges every day.

With your freedom, your financial security, your reputation and perhaps even your employment prospects at risk, it may be difficult to think clearly and objectively about your next steps. And, if you’re like most people who find themselves charged with a crime, the criminal court procedures will be unfamiliar to you and may be confusing and intimidating. That’s what we’re here for.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, schedule a free consultation right away. Timing matters, as you may miss important deadlines or leave too little time to obtain evidence to fight the charges against you. Just call 269-978-6560.
