Civil Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution

Family Law

Family law encompasses divorce, custody, and a variety of other issues regarding domestic relations and the family. In addition to understanding the substantive law, family law attorneys must be well versed in procedure and should develop familiarity with several dispute resolution processes. Family law attorneys also stand to benefit from an understanding of several subject matters that often intersect with family law, including estate planning, probate, the law and structure surrounding various business entities, and tax.
