What Are You Trying to Achieve?

Some family law issues are cut and dry; if that’s the case, we’ll say so. But suppose you’re looking to protect a business in a divorce, negotiate a fair settlement, or pursue a custody agreement that makes sense for your family. In that case, we will review all your legal options and find the best way to impact you and your family positively.

We’ll Negotiate When We Can

Sometimes things get contentious before anyone calls a family lawyer. By bringing the sides together, we can often get a fair outcome and put it all to rest. While we pursue every amicable avenue possible, that doesn’t mean we’ll ever let you be taken advantage of.

We’re Ready for Anything

Most family cases in Portage County don’t go to trial, but sometimes judges need to weigh in. With our courtroom record, our team knows what works, what won’t, and how to protect you. This lets us anticipate the other side’s moves and see opportunities to resolve things in your favor. Plus, making peace becomes very appealing when the other side knows you’re not afraid.

We take your domestic law issue as seriously as you do. Whether it’s a complicated divorce in Ravenna, an awkward custody issue in Streetsboro, or you want to negotiate the division of marital property anywhere in Portage County, our skill and knowledge can be instrumental in securing the outcome you need to see.
