Family Law Services

The modern family today takes many forms. Whether you are separating a family unit into two households or just starting to build your family, we are here to help. Having a lawyer who truly understands your family and values is essential.

Family law brings major changes for you and your family. Our goal is to allow you to focus on your future and move forward with your life.

Family law issues are generally not planned. We work with you by offering custom flat fees and payment plans. These options allow you to manage your legal fees in a way that works with your family budget.

We treat our clients like family and appreciate the trust they place in us to protect theirs.

"Max did an excellent job handling my divorce. She helped me understand the process and gave very constructive suggestions. Everything was handled proficiently and she even got my ex to counter his own offer! I would highly recommend her."

R. R. - Divorce Client

"[Max] was professional and knowledgeable. I feel like I have someone in my corner ready to help me keep a full and active roll in my kids lives. She was willing to work with my schedule and not run up a bill just to get paid more money. If you’re looking for a family law attorney, give Max a call. I certainly am glad I did."
