Who We Represent

We represent people from every age group, gender, cultural background, profession, and walk of life. Our family law clients include stay-at-home spouses, married parents, and unmarried parents; small business owners and corporate executives; handymen, general contractors, architects, and engineers; accountants, veterinarians, and healthcare and mental health providers; attorneys and other legal professionals; childcare providers, teachers, college professors, and other educational professionals; military servicemembers and military spouses; same-sex couples; and all levels of government employees. Some of our clients are in their twenties, who are just starting out in life and do not know how they will make ends meet; some are in their seventies and facing divorce in their retirement; and others fall somewhere in between. We negotiate and litigate with the same fervor for our clients whether the value of the marital estate is a few thousand or tens of millions of dollars. We know that each case is important to the person living through it, and we treat each client with respect, dignity, and compassion.
