Disputed Child Custody Cases

While, when possible, it's always best when parents are able to come together to discuss and make decisions related to custody and their children out of court. We are all too familiar with the fact that there are times when parents are unable to find common ground and it is necessary to take a case to court. This is often especially true in cases where there is a history of substance abuse or domestic violence. If you are involved in a custody dispute, we will fight to protect and promote your children's best interests.
