Expert Help For All of Your Family Law Needs

There are many different types of family law cases. Divorces, military divorces, legal separations, spousal maintenance, paternity suits, legal decision-making, parenting time, child support, grandparents' rights, relocations, and orders of protection in domestic violence suits are just a few of the wide range of family law legal matters that I have dealt with over the last four decades. When legal difficulties arise in your marriage or in your family, you can rely on me to provide expert advice throughout your entire case.

My ability to understand each client's specific set of facts and apply the law to their individual circumstances sets me apart from many of my colleagues. This is not a "cookie-cutter" law firm. There are no multi-use form letters or pleadings. All letters, pleadings, email correspondence and other documents are prepared from "scratch" with your individual goals in mind. If you are facing the end of your marriage or any level of uncertainty about whether you will be able to spend time with your children, you will need a strong, competent attorney with substantial litigation

experience to fight for your best interest. I will be by your side at every turn as we seek a fair and equitable outcome.

Military divorces present unique challenges. If a military parent is stationed overseas or even across the country, special care needs to be taken when drafting legal decision-making, parenting time and relocation orders. Spousal maintenance and the division of military retirement are also issues frequently present in military divorces. I proudly offer a discount to both enlisted personnel and their spouses. We have represented clients from Davis Monthan Air Force Base as well as from around the world.

No matter what issues you may be facing — from prenuptial agreements or post-decree modifications to amicable uncontested divorces or highly-contested divorce proceedings — you can benefit from meeting with an accomplished family lawyer to explore your available options. If you are in the greater Tucson, Arizona area, and you are in need of expert, experienced and trustworthy representation, call me today to schedule a consultation.
