Our specialty is domestic relations litigation, primarily divorce cases. These cases range from simple property division cases to complex business evaluations and contested custody cases. The legislature has enacted laws to control the discretion of the court in family cases. Over the years, these laws have been tested, challenged, and amended through many cases. From these precedents, we can distill some general norms that can be used to predict results. However, given that the law is always evolving to meet the needs of today’s society, it is often possible to challenge yesterday’s “norms” in pursuit of appropriate goals for our clients.
