Efficient & Effective Legal Representation

Whether facing a divorce, a potential adoption, or a child custody matter, our team is here to support you. While a case may be emotionally taxing, we believe it should not cause you to go bankrupt. We know that legal representation may come with financial hardship. 

Before making any significant investment, ensuring your money is being put to its best use is vital. The same principle applies to hiring a lawyer. 

That is why we carefully analyze each potential family law case and make recommendations to you based on our findings. No cookie-cutter solutions will be used when you work with our attorneys. We operate on the principle that each case is unique and provide the assistance that is right for you and your budget. 

We won’t pursue litigations that don’t make sense from a cost-benefit analysis perspective, saving you time and money. Our commitment to providing honest and straightforward feedback is one of the many reasons our clients choose to work with us.

    Mr. Emerson for lack of a better phrase held my hand through my entire custody process. I was very busy with other personal matters during the custody procedures, but my case never missed a beat due to Mr. Emersons diligence. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in any of his areas of expertise. Mr. Emersons rates were also fantastic when I compared a few different lawyers.
