FAMILY & JUVENILE LAW
Family Law, also called “domestic relations,” deals with family-related issues and disputes resulting from family relationships and obligations. Family law encompasses a wide variety of cases including divorce, child custody and visitation, paternity, child support, adoption, guardianship, domestic violence, and modifications of previous orders. Family lawyers also draft prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
A family lawyer can help you navigate the legal process, assist you with decisions regarding division of property and assets, establish a parenting plan, and negotiate agreements. An experienced family lawyer will know the particulars of the courts and judges in the area and can help you craft a successful approach to your domestic relations case. Family lawyers must also have a wide range of legal skills and exceptional interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to manage emotionally volitile situations.

Juvenile Law is an area of criminal law reserved for individuals who are not of legal age that need assistance with either juvenile delinquency or dependency neglect matters. Juvenile cases may involve offenses such as the driving violations, truancy, burglary, drug possession, assault, sexual offenses, theft, or murder. The focus of the juvenile court is on rehabilitation of offenders rather than on punishment.
An experienced juvenile lawyer will be able to guide you and your child through the legal process and can explain what options are available to him or her. The lawyer can also represent your child at court hearings, may help your child avoid incarceration, advocate for leniency on your child’s behalf, and work to protect your child’s future by preventing or minimizing the effect of the juvenile’s court record.
Your Family Isn't In This Alone
“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”
– Abraham Lincoln
