Matters that can arise in a family law dispute include:

While all of these issues might seem wholly unfamiliar to you, they are routine concerns for myself and my legal team. I generally prefer to approach each divorce or separation with mediation in mind. Problems that can be concluded in mediation help save you time, money, and energy. Although, if your spouse is not cooperating, I will be ready to take your case to court.

Your rights are worth protecting when you are accused of a criminal charge. I believe there is no such thing as an indefensible criminal case.
