Divorce Attorney and Family Law – Divorce Attorney, Family Law, Child Custody and Litigation.  Why practice in divorce and family law as well as personal injury? Because I believe that they are similar in many ways. Like the personal injury victim, one involved in a divorce or modification battle needs someone to aggressively represent their interests. Their spouse or ex-spouse is certainly not focused on their needs or wants. Often, they are also unconcerned with their children’s best interests.I take great pride in helping my clients and the Court focus on the key issues in a divorce or modification proceeding, whether that be the children’s well-being or ensuring that the parent paying child support is not paying so much that he or she cannot meet their own needs.
