Co-Parenting Your Children
We know few things can be as difficult as co-parenting your child with their other parent after a divorce. But it is possible, and it is typically the best solution for raising your child.

Our attorneys have numerous credentials to help our clients with a wide variety of legal concerns. One of our attorneys is a Certified Family Law Specialist, as certified by the Family Law Certification Board, and two of our attorneys are registered family law mediators and parenting coordinators. In addition, two of our attorneys have been trained with collaborative counseling methods. Our practice is focused on family law matters, and we have worked with hundreds of families in the region, so we know the common challenges families face. We can help you make the best of your difficult family situation and move forward.
Elder Law And Estate Planning Services
Many people think of elder law as estate planning. While it is commonplace to say everyone needs an estate plan, it’s true. Without an estate plan, you and your family are subject to uncertainty. While estate planning falls under the elder law “umbrella,” elder law is primarily focused on addressing your lifetime needs, as well as what happens once you are gone.
Our lawyers can help you understand the law, your options, and work with you and your family to resolve these issues, which is often a mix of issues, depending on your age and mental and physical health. We take the time to listen to you and understand your goals. Then, we work together to achieve those goals.
Helping you where you are today.
