A free screening consultation is often offered as an opportunity to meet, evaluate and ask questions in person.

Agreement Drafting

We draft cohabitation agreements, marriage contracts (“pre-nups”), separation agreements, and parenting plans.

Education Advocacy

When a child or juvenile has difficulty coping in school and needs an advocate, we assist in negotiation or representation. We frequently address behavioral issues, special needs, truancy, suspension, or expulsion.

Uncontested Divorce

We prepare the necessary papers to file when both parties are in agreement to not involve the court any more than is necessary.

Guardian Ad Litem

We represent the best interests of the child in court proceedings when requested by the court or by private parties.
