Divorce and family law issues are extremely personal. As your lawyers, we can provide much-needed perspective while working hard for your best interests.
“Lawrence is one of those rare lawyers with a sterling reputation for being trustworthy, credible, and brilliant. As a fellow lawyer, I’ve referred Larry often. Not once in all the years we’ve worked together have I regretted sending a client to him. He always follows through. He always solves the problem. He always delivers value.”
– Marty Collins, fellow attorney & client
Our Litigation Experience Can Help Your Case Succeed
Many family law issues can be resolved through negotiation or mediation. Whether or not your case seems likely to go to trial, we prepare it as if it will. Preparing for trial helps us uncover the strengths and weaknesses of our case, as well as the other side’s, which allows us to negotiate from a position of strength.
In addition to our full-service family law practice, our attorneys have successfully litigated personal injury cases arising from serious injury or death, as well as real estate and business disputes.
