William Smith

Family law matters are personal, emotional and frequently involve complex legal or factual issues. I take pride in helping men and women through the process. I focus my practice on family law issues including complex dissolution of marriage actions, allocation of parental responsibility cases, asset preservation, child support, parenting time disputes and adoption.

Understanding and navigating a legal process can be a stressful experience. I work with my clients to formulate a strategy tailored to their needs and expectations. Clients are my primary concern.

Many family law matters can be amicably resolved after careful analysis of all potential factors. I am a firm believer in amicable settlement to both maximize my client's position and provide cost-effective resolution. When matters cannot be amicably resolved, I have extensive litigation experience and advocate aggressively for my clients.
