FAMILY & DIVORCE LAW

Divorce, Annulments, Child Custody, Guardianship, Spousal & Child Support

Family Law Attorney

These are many complex legal issues related to children and family that traditional and nontraditional couples may face during and after divorce.  Successfully navigating and resolving these matters requires competent and knowledgeable legal representation by an experienced family law attorney.

Property Division & Valuation

The division of marital assets and debts starts with proper valuation followed by determination of how the assets accumulated during the union will be distributed.  Whether the asset is real estate and other property, or savings, business interests, retirement funds and pensions, professional legal representation is critical.  Housing decisions will have to be made based on the best interests of both parties and any children.  Determinations also have to be made regarding responsibility for outstanding credit card balances, loans and other debts.

Maintenance 

Factors such as the ability or inability of one spouse to earn a living and the length of the marriage may impact the awarding, the amount and the duration of spousal support or maintenance payments.

Legal Custody & Physical Placement of Children, Child Support

Among the most important decisions in any divorce case are those related to the children.  It’s important to have experienced legal counsel when decisions are being made about who will have legal custody and make legal and medical decisions for the children, who they will live with, the amount of child support and who will pay it.

Since this was the first situation for which I required the services of an Attorney, I was unsure of what to expect from the experience.  Your personable, professional manner put me at east.  I appreciated the timely communications and updates as matters progressed.  Your tenaciousness and perseverance were not only impressive but yielded an outcome that exceeded my expectations.

I wanted you to know how extremely impressed I was with Ms. Brown’s handling of this matter.  I do not often take the time to write letters such as these, but she handled an incredibly difficult matter with much intelligence and quickness of response to a judge who wouldn’t concede to her anything.  From where I sit, I see scores and scores of… attorneys in court, and every now and then, one sticks out as being exceptional.  Ms. Brown is one such exceptional attorney.
