    What can we help you with?

    Divorce

    Divorce potentially represents the most traumatic time – and the most substantial financial transaction – most people will ever experience. The emotional impact of the change in marital and family status makes decision-making and charting a clear and effective future challenging.

    Property Division

     

    If family law is the mother of all civil litigation, then child custody is the mother of all family law litigation. Nothing is more sacred to almost any parent, and no interest is more protected in law than that of an individual being allowed to be a parent to their own child. With most parents, the uncertainties of California and Nevada child custody litigation and determinations are the greatest source of anxiety and stress in any action in which such matters are to be decided.
