Dissolution of Marriage

Dissolution of marriage is a legal process that terminates the marital rights and responsibilities between spouses. It can be an extremely stressful and emotional time as it may substantially affect your financial and personal life. Issues commonly involved in a dissolution case are classification and division of assets of the spouses, grounds for the dissolution, ongoing obligations to provide for a spouse after dissolution, the welfare of any children of the marriage, and tax consequences.

 

We have experience dealing with these matters, and we handle each unique case with compassion and consideration for our clients’ needs. If you are facing dissolution of your marriage, contact us for a free initial case evaluation, and we can provide you with the legal advice you need to ensure that you are treated fairly and your rights are protected throughout this process.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a very serious crime in the State of Florida, and when you are involved in such matters, it is critical for your attorney to have the knowledge and experience necessary to protect your rights.

 

No matter if you have been accused of domestic violence, or you are a victim, we will handle your sensitive issue with the highest level of compassion and care. Our Partners have had experience working as an Assistant State Attorney and special public defender, giving them inside knowledge that is important to achieving the best outcome for your case.

Juvenile Dependency

When a child has been removed from his/her home, or adjudicated as dependent upon the state for reasons of abuse, abandonment or neglect, parents are entitled by law to a court appointed attorney. Often, however, a private attorney will have a greater amount of experience in these matters, devote more time to your case, and be more effective in protecting your fundamental parental rights, than a court appointed representative. We have a substantial amount of experience in representing both parents and children involved in dependency proceedings, and understand that there is no greater bond than that shared between a parent and his/her child.
