Firm history

Serving mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives

Our clients include mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, parents who have never been married, married persons seeking divorce and couples preparing for marriage. Since our firm’s early years, our attorneys have been strong advocates for the rights of parents and children and were instrumental in resolving traditional inequities in family law.
