Billing By The Hour Is Cancelled

We are committed to providing skilled family law services at affordable prices. We do not believe in billing by the hour. Rather, we embrace technology and efficiency, setting fixed fees specific to your legal needs. This model ensures you only pay for the legal services you need.

We believe in making a difference in our community by bringing access and justice to all individuals we serve. However, we do not allow our focus on affordability to diminish our competence in family law practice or client service. We know the law. You can trust that we always enter the courtroom with confidence, zealously representing your interests.


We strive to provide access to high quality legal representation to all members of the communities we represent, regardless of income qualifications.


We pride ourselves on the hard work required to represent our clients successfully, morally and ethically.


We respect and treat all clients equally regardless of age, sex, gender, gender identity, race, religion, social and economic status.


We ensure our clients have a clear understanding of their legal rights, alternative options and personal plan of action. We work together with our clients, encouraging their input.
