Experienced, Compassionate Guidance For Same-Sex Family Law Matters

Family is no longer defined in the standard “nuclear family” way. The U.S. Supreme Court has officially recognized same-sex marriages, giving same-sex couples the same rights and obligations under the law as opposite-sex married couples.

While same-sex couples now can enjoy the benefits of a legally recognized marriage, it also means that they must formally deal with issues of divorce as well. When faced with difficult decisions about your family, it is important to have advocates in your corner who want what is best for you.
