Ron Litvak's vision drives the firm today. He finds ways to "harness the beast" of exploding technology to enable our people to provide a more human, more responsive experience for those we serve. When clients first encounter the need for family law help, they often don't know whether they will need the tools of a litigation team or whether they will be able to resolve matters on a more transactional basis. Ron has built the firm's resources to be effective no matter what direction the legal issues may take. Ron's passion for family law is infectious. Ron brings a depth of knowledge in family law and a raconteur's skill that is so widely regarded by his peers that he is widely sought after as a lecturer and mentor. And Ron's facility with a complex set of numbers is the stuff of legends.
