My Practice Areas
Aggressive and conscientious advocacy of your family law issues
As your family law attorney, I will manage your case with care and professionalism. The principal issues I manage for my Wichita clients include:
- Divorce — When it’s time to dissolve your marriage, you need a forward-looking attorney who can help you achieve your goals for a secure future. I understand how important the terms of your divorce decree are for your future, so I work diligently to negotiate a favorable marital settlement. When settlement is not possible, I litigate divorce cases aggressively to secure the best possible outcome.
- Uncontested divorce — The quickest and most cost-effective type of marital dissolution is an uncontested divorce, which avoids trial completely. However, as beneficial as an uncontested divorce is, it’s not always an easy matter to achieve. Through principled negotiation, honed over more than two decades of family law practice, I can often overcome obstacles to forge fair and equitable settlements to tough issues of child custody, alimony, child support, and the division of marital property.
- Child custody — Perhaps the most emotionally charged issue in divorce is the one that involves your relationship with your children. But child custody disputes are not limited to divorcing parents. Unmarried parents and grandparents often need to resolve custody and visitation issues in court. I assert my clients’ parental or statutory rights aggressively, either in negotiations of fair parenting plans or in court hearings on custody and visitation issues.
- Child support — Although the Kansas Supreme Court has adopted child support guidelines, the courts retain significant discretion with regard to adjustments. I fight to ensure that your child support order is fair based on the financial realities you face.
With these issues and many more, I am determined to provide exceptional legal services, starting with personal attention to your concerns from the moment I sit down together and continuing through every step of the legal process.
