Achieving your family law goals can be extremely difficult when you have a spouse or share a child with a person who is currently serving abroad in the military or if you are currently serving in the military and going through the divorce process. If you find yourself in this situation, I can help you achieve fair and equitable results in your family law matter.

I understand that this is an extremely personal and emotional area of law and will be there to hold your hand throughout the duration of your legal proceedings.
