Firm Overview

I founded my firm in 1973. The firm produces high quality work in a timely manner. We focus on family law, wills, trusts and probate.

Example cases

My favorite cases are when someone comes in distraught and not knowing what to do, but can reach a resolution in the end. We first teach how to visualize truth and then visualize what would be a win-win settlement for both parties and the children. The party then takes that to the other party and gets a mental consensus on the agreement, and we draft an agreement for the other party to take to their own attorney and have it reviewed. Ideally, the attorney reviewing it doesn't make any changes. That's a win-win.

A wife came to me, and we filed for divorce. She had been married for 10 years. The husband was ill with MS and had originally started a company at the beginning of the marriage, but the company was not in his name. The company was in his brother's name, a friend and his partner. At the other end, he stated he didn't have any assets and filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Through discovery, I was able to obtain over $500,000 for my client.
