How can I help?


Divorce

Whether you are ready to file for divorce or are in the middle of a divorce, you need someone you can count on to protect you, your family and your assets.  Divorce can be complicated and many issues may arise.  Perhaps your child has special needs, one party received an inheritance, how do you divide retirement accounts.  Having an experienced attorney on your side can ensure that you know your rights and that you do not create problems for the future.  


Guardianship

The need for a guardianship may arise at any time.  A spouse or a loved on may become injured.  Parents may age and become unable to make informed decisions. Children with disabilities may reach adulthood.    Having the paperwork done properly and quickly can ensure that your loved ones are provided for without delay.   


General Civil 

Issues with your landlord, deeding property to another individual, drafting a land contract, splitting property you own jointly with another, suing someone who owes you money.  No matter what the issue, you deserve quality representation.



Custody/Parenting Time

Custody and parenting time issues for couples can cause a significant amount of animosity.  The ability to care for one’s children is a fundamental right protected by the Constitution.  You must know your rights and understand the process to protect yourself and your children. 


Estate Planning/ Probating

Every family is different.  Regardless of whether you have no assets or significant assets, you need a plan.  Your loved ones need to know your wishes.  A full discussion is necessary to determine what your needs are and how they can best be met.  

When a loved one passes away there are so many things to plan and handle. Take the stress of the estate off your plate and allow a professional  to handle the paperwork.  Ensure that you get your fair share and that your loved ones wishes are being met. 


Domestice Relations Mediation 

 Mediation is an opportunity for two people with differences to come together and make a decision about the outcome of their case.  As a trained Domestic Relations Mediator, I act as a neutral third party to provide a safe environment where both parties can express opinions, narrow their differences and reach a resolution.  Mediation removes the necessity of litigation on many issues and can keep parents united and families strong during turmoil. 



Child Support 

Child support is a calculation based on the amount of money a person makes and the amount of time spent with the children "overnight."  How the court calculates your income or the other parent's income can have a significant impact on your requirement to pay or right to receive support.  


Drivers License Restoration

Living without a driver's license is a struggle.  It can prevent you from working, getting medical treatment, or enjoying everyday life.  When it is time to ask for your driving privileges to be restored you need to be prepared.  Don't take the risk of being denied because you did not understand the requirements.   


Adoption

Adopting a child or a step child is an exciting time.  Freeing a child for adoption and making yourself eligible should be handled by a professional.  There are specific legal requirements that every family must follow to be successful.  Do not delay making your family whole by trying to maneuver the process yourself.
