Family Law


Family law is a generally broad term, encompassing many areas of law including, but not limited to divorces, custody, visitation, spousal support, child support, domestic partnerships, adoption, estate planning, elder law, child abuse, neglect and even new reproductive technology cases.

Our country is a great place to live, but it is necessary to be here legally. If you or a loved one would like to obtain legal residency or citizenship, or if you or someone you may know is facing deportation, the proper representation is of the utmost importance. The immigration process can be a lengthy one. There are papers to be filed and countless forms to be filled.
