While nearly half of all marriages in the United States end in divorce, many people do not fully consider the impact of a divorce on their assets, estate and family until it is too late. A divorce can have devastating financial consequences for you and your family, in addition to the emotional havoc that is generally associated with the process. It is imperative that in a time of personal difficulty such as divorce, child custody or a probate dispute, your lawyer is able to respond to your needs with skill, compassion and strong advocacy.
