Divorce and Legal Separation

The end of a marriage can be one of the most challenging times of life, only to be compounded by the legal proceedings that follow. Every family law matter is as unique as the individuals involved. I take the time to get to know my clients and their concerns, so that we can effectively partner to reach the best resolution.

New cases typically begin with an interim agreement/orders regarding urgent issues, followed by information and records exchange, and negotiation/settlement efforts. I seek to reach agreement through a collaborative, problem-solving approach. Most of my cases settle through this process, but if litigation is required to bring the matter to closure, I am a tenacious advocate for my clients in deposition and the courtroom.

There's No Need to Compromise When Hiring a Lawyer

Regardless of the format (full-service or limited-scope representation or consulting services), I work closely with my clients to evaluate the issues and options, and to develop a plan to resolve the matter. My clients receive the highest caliber of family law service, as well as caring and attentive communication that helps minimize stress of the process. The services of my paralegal Karen Nielsen Balch are incorporated from time to time for cost-effectiveness, but I am personally the primary service provider and point of contact for my clients.
