Boca Raton Family Law Attorney

In more than 30 years of legal practice, I have served numerous clients across a wide range of situations. As unique as your specific situation may be, it is likely that I have helped someone in a similar situation. I am also at very much at ease arguing my client's position in a courtroom before a judge. In 1991, I appeared before the Supreme Court of Florida to argue the landmark case of Robertson vs. Robertson. This case has had a profound impact on martial property rights in Florida, and is cited frequently by trial judges throughout the state of Florida. I have additional experience arguing cases before appellate courts, having argued more than 40 cases before the Fourth District Court of Appeal in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The possibility of a looming divorce proceeding can be a frightening experience. This is especially true when there are minor children whose needs must be met.

There are many unanswered questions going through your mind. The "fear of the unknown" as well as the daunting judicial process that awaits you can cause extreme anxiety.

Being a seasoned trial attorney, with over 34 years of experience, I am well equipped to alleviate most, if not all of your fears and anxiety. I understand the how the legal system operates as well as what various judges expect from the professionals who appear in their courtrooms.

I will educate you so that you will have a clear understanding of your rights, responsibilities and obligations. You will have all the knowledge and information necessary in order for you to make informed decisions concerning your family and your future.

The process of divorce can take an emotional drain on almost anyone. I attempt to seek prompt resolutions to existing disputes at the earliest opportunity. This is especially true in cases which involve minor children.

The court considers the best interests of minor children to be paramount in any case in which the parents have ongoing conflict. The court will seek to shield minor children from any harm that may either be intentionally or unintentionally inflicted upon them, based upon the conduct of either one parent or the other.

When choosing a lawyer, having trust in that particular individual is most important. You entrusting your future financial well-being with the attorney you chose. More importantly, however, you are also entrusting your lawyer with the future of your children.

Generally speaking, most lawyers who hold themselves out as family law attorneys are equally qualified to represent you in your case. However, you should not base your decision solely upon marketing strategies employed by lawyers. This is why I offer free initial consultations with everyone, and afford them the opportunity to come in and meet with me. I will not watch the clock, nor will I limit your time with me. This is your life, your future, and you should not be under any pressure to tell me everything you want to say. I will spend as much time with you as the situation requires. Get to know your lawyer before you hire him or her.

I would encourage you to review the testimonials that have been posted on my website. As you can see from the testimonials, I provide all of my clients with hands on dedication to their case. No one is shortchanged. Many of my previous clients have found my even tempered, calming, non confrontational personality to be a great benefit to them. That's not to say that I don't assume the persona of the Incredible Hulk, as one client commented, when the situation requires me to do so. I will vigilantly protect your rights.

So if you suddenly find yourself in the uncomfortable situation of facing a divorce, you do not have to "go it alone". I would urge you to take advantage of the opportunity that I am offering and feel free to call me when you are ready to face your situation head on.

The other cornerstone of my work is my commitment to offering a high level of personal service to each client. I will respond promptly to your phone calls and e-mails, and will take the time to fully understand what you want in your case. I understand that the way in which your case is resolved will have a major impact on your life, and I move the case in the direction you want it to go. Divorce is an emotional event in one's life, and I know that personal attention and assistance is required after hours or on weekends. I will make myself available to you throughout the weekend and during evenings. I truly understand your situation and know I can help.

I will also give you realistic counsel about how your case is likely to proceed. I will not make promises or give you the idea that I can achieve results that are not likely to happen. Instead, I will inform you of your options and the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Once we have agreed on a course of action, I will work hard to achieve your goals.
