Family Lawyers in Las Vegas
Since its inception, the firm has handled complex divorce and custody matters at both the trial and appellate level. The firm has handled multi-million dollar divorce trials and settlements, negotiated and litigated pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, and handled highly contentious custody cases, including the termination of parental rights. Through this experience, we are able to resolve any divorce issue as efficiently as possible, including complex business assets and the use of expert witnesses in custody and business valuation cases.
Because of our collaborative and holistic approach, our firm believes we can get divorce settlements at a lower cost for the client than other firms. We use our extensive experience in family court to guide each client successfully through the pit falls of divorce by keeping real life issues in the forefront.

Our philosophy in handling a divorce or custody dispute is not to waste client time and/or money.
