You don’t have time to waste; contact us today if you have been charged, or believe you will be charged, with:

Additional family law, divorce, estate planning, and probate services

Over the past two decades, we’ve found that clients who contact us for help in one area will often contact us again for assistance with a different legal issue. Though we built our reputation on our work on behalf of injury clients and those facing criminal charges, we also offer a wide array of additional legal services for clients and families. If you are facing a divorce, need assistance with child custody or child support, wish to modify a court order, or need to draft a prenuptial agreement, our family law attorneys are here to help.

We also assist clients seeking to ensure their final wishes are met, and their legacies protected. Our estate planning services are designed to help clients create wills, trusts, charitable giving plans, and powers of attorney. We also serve as executors during probate, and assist clients facing probate litigation due to will contests and other unexpected circumstances.
