If your attorney hasn’t talked to you about, and suggested, that there are peaceful solutions to your legal problems, you are talking to the wrong attorney. As an attorney I have come to understand that fighting is NEVER the best solution. It is a last resort when you...

There is no "one size fits all" custody arrangement. The family law trend over the years has been to create custody arrangements like, 2-2-3 or 2-2-5, that allows equal parenting time. The problem is that trying to fit the busy, complex lives of families into pre-creat...

My therapist likes to say “Don’t waste a good crisis.” Divorce is a major family crisis. I have not only been through a divorce, I am a divorce attorney that helps people see the event as an opportunity rather than a devastating ending or a war. Divorce is merely a tim...
