We will protect your individual interests as well as your family’s legacy.

When Your Family Takes A Different Form

Marriages end for all sorts of reasons. If you are facing divorce, we can guide you through the legal steps with your emotions and your finances as intact as possible. We can also help you do what’s best for your kids regarding child custody, support and parenting time issues.

Kim Talken leads our family law practice. She has over a decade of experience guiding people toward brighter futures, handling all aspects of family law.

Protecting Your Legacy Through Estate Law

Estate law does not only include ways to pass along wealth, typically within families. It also allows tools and procedures such as powers of attorney, trusts and guardianships to carry out people’s directives, protect assets and deliver other forms of assistance. To be effective, however, estate planning and administration must be tailored to the individual’s specific situation.

John Kerley leads our estate planning and probate/estate administration practice. With over 30 years of legal experience, he is known for finding responsive solutions that reflect careful planning and attention to detail.
