Each situation is different and your needs for assistance may change over time. There are several ways that I can assist you in your family matters:
Comprehensive Consultations - Identify the issues of importance in your situation; Educate you about the law as it relates to your circumstances; Evaluate what process options are suitable for your matter; Strategize and discuss your next steps.
Independent Legal Advice - Clarify what your lawyer is recommending; understand a process or Agreement that has been recommended.
