Bringing the voice of reason to the emotional arena of family law

We feel that divorce and other family law issues carry with them more volatile emotions than any other area of law. Traversing the issues that need resolution can be very much like walking in a live mine field. Couple this atmosphere with the fact that the decisions made during this time can have significant and lasting consequences, it is easy to see the need for a reasonable voice to prevail. We strive to be that voice.

Whether your issues are resolved through negotiation, mediation, or litigation, we work tirelessly for you every step of the way. We listen carefully to your situation and concerns. Our divorce lawyers in Huntsville understand that sometimes it becomes necessary to resolve matters in court. At our core, we are a litigation firm and while we recognize the value of avoiding litigation whenever possible, we are prepared to aggressively litigate these matters.
