"As your attorney, I want to help solve your problems not escalate them further. A divorce or the end of a same sex relationship can be a painful, difficult and confusing experience. In representing a client in a divorce, dissolution of a same sex relationship, or custody matter, my goal is to work with them and the other side to find a constructive, meaningful solution that will restore balance and allow the parties to move forward in their lives. If the parties are able to reach a solution together, with the assistance of their attorneys, with a minimum of hostility and without court involvement, they are significantly more likely to honor that agreement. This not only benefits the parties, but also their children."
