Experience Obtaining Favorable Divorce Settlements

My firm has a history of obtaining favorable divorce settlements pertaining to these key issues:

Marital property division

Any property acquired during the course of a marriage is considered marital property and belongs equally to both parties. I will fight to help you obtain your fair share of marital property and I can assist you in defending your claims to properties that you acquired using non-marital sources and/or funds.

Child custody

In Florida, many parents receive equal access to their children. I will help you establish a parenting plan which maximizes your time with your child.

Child support

Each parent’s respective income and time spent with the child or children directly relates to the amount of child support to be paid or received.


I can assist you obtaining and/or defending against temporary, rehabilitative, permanent and lump sum alimony demands.

My clients appreciate that I am upfront about the cost of my legal representation. I understand that no one wants to be surprised by escalating legal fees.
