Our firm handles a spectrum of cases—from the straightforward to the complex. Regardless of the size of the case, each client receives the same level of excellent legal counsel. In complicated cases, the knowledge, skill and experience of a partner is often leveraged with the collaboration of an associate lawyer to ensure that the matter is handled in the most cost-effective manner possible.
Our large matrimonial department consists of an experienced team who work together to tackle cases in a straightforward, compassionate, and cost effective manner.
