Resolving a divorce or parenting action through mediation rather than litigation will save time, money, and emotional strain. With mediation, the future of a family unit can be determined in a collaborative, rather than adversarial manner.
Grandparent and Third-Party Visitation Rights
Adoption & Surrogacy
We have extensive experience in adoption law and our firm loves to be a part of your growing family. Whether we’re working hand-in-hand with an agency or navigating complex adoption laws through the Indian Child Welfare Act, your family is our priority.
Termination of Parental Rights
We have successfully resolved complex divorce cases involving a wide variety of business entities, oil and gas interests, and more. As for parenting responsibility actions, the focus always remains on the best interests of the children. When settlement is the best option for the clients, cases can be resolved in a cost-effective manner, and clients may never have to set foot into a courtroom. When trial is required, we carefully analyze the entire case, focus on the client’s specific goals, and successfully guide our clients through litigation.
