|Please inquire about other areas of practice.|
Family law. Even what seems like it should be a simple separation becomes much more complicated when children or assets are involved. The right attorney can help you create a parenting plan or equitable division agreement that stands the test of time. By talking you through common contingencies, such as job loss or relocation, our attorney can help you create a robust child custody, child support or settlement agreement that may help you avoid the cost of future litigation.
Same Gender Couples Issues. Since Florida has adopted laws recognizing civil unions, lawyers have had to be creative to effectuate the interests of same-sex couples seeking to adopt, purchase real estate or transfer assets on death. Our firm offers comprehensive legal services to help you enact your legal wishes in a variety of personal situations.
Guardianship. When a loved one is exhibiting symptoms of incapacity such as forgetfulness or paranoia, a family member may petition the court to intervene and appoint a guardian to act as a proxy for the person and the estate. A judge is then authorized to decide whether to appoint a guardian to take care of the loved one’s best interests. Our attorney can advocate for you in this situation in a court of law.
Will and Advance Directives. A legal will outlines your personal preferences in the event of death or incapacity. Our attorney delivers comprehensive legal representation on a range of legal instruments to specify your personal preferences at death or incapacity, including but not limited to healthcare surrogacy, pre-need guardian and living will applications.
Criminal Defense. Facing criminal charges could expose you to penalties beyond fines and a prison term. A conviction could lead to a loss of employment prospects, higher insurance premiums and potential public stigma as an ex-con. Our attorney is proud to have served as an Assistant Public Defender and proudly represents criminal defendants accused of felony and misdemeanor charges ranging from juvenile delinquency to drug possession.
