We help with the legal issues involving family relationships such as divorce, custody, and post decree. We formulate a settlement plan to include marital property, spousal support, child custody and more. We understand the ever changing forces that stimulate changes in people’s lives.

Real Estate Law
We help you navigate through all the state and local laws that help to ensure a smooth transaction of real property. Typical Real Estate services include researching a title, advise viable mortgage options, facilitating the closing process, planning escrow, and more. In the difficult situation of foreclosure, we can help mitigate losses and further protect you. We also assist with estate planning.
Estates & Trusts
Sadly many necessary questions are brought up during the difficult time faced after the loss of a loved one. When unplanned, taking over the affairs and estates of the deceased will prove to be challenging for all involved. We help avoid those uncertainties by helping you plan for a future that will ensure your estate through a will, or trust.
