Family Law

No one plans for their happily ever after to unravel.  

Should you or a family member find that you need legal counsel to understand your rights and obligations and guide you through the difficulties involved with the termination of your marriage, our family law attorneys stand by your side. We have years of experience in dealing with the legal and financial implications associated with all aspects of divorce. 

We represent clients in traditional divorce litigation.  We also offer more contemporary alternatives to litigation, which alternatives are collaborative in process and specifically designed to minimize the emotional, financial, and psychological impact of divorce. Together, we evaluate your circumstances and help you choose the best process for you and your family.  We also have extensive experience in juvenile court, which proceedings involve the complex rights and obligations of unwed parents (including custody, parenting time, and child support). 

Our attorneys practice in all counties of northeast Ohio and are members of the Cleveland Academy of Collaborative Professionals, have earned an AV Rating (Preeminent) with Martindale-Hubbell (highest rating available), and are recognized by Best Lawyers.

During this emotional time, our attorneys have the compassion, patience, and understanding to guide you to your new life.
