About the Practice

Being a small law firm allows us to remain agile. Our extensive network of friends and colleagues enables us to offer the comprehensive services of larger firms while maintaining the personalized attention of an independent practitioner. With experience in both military and civilian courts, we provide a unique perspective that can provide an advantage in legal proceedings.

Our firm holds a steadfast belief in prioritizing the welfare of your children, ensuring they have the necessary support while providing parents with robust legal counsel and tools to secure their children’s future beyond their own.

While we focus on providing exceptional services to our clients, we also understand the importance of knowing our limitations. We are committed to offering strong referrals when your needs extend beyond our expertise.
