Family Law and Divorce
Family Law and Divorce in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Sarasota, Pinellas County, and surrounding West Florida areas.
Florida is a no fault state when it comes to divorce. This means if you or your spouse decide to legally end the marriage, it will be ended. How you and your family handle the ending of your marriage impacts not only the present, but also your entire future.
Divorce is second only to the death of a loved one in its emotional and psychological impact. When not handled properly, divorce can be even worse. Financial pressures, concerns about children, and related complications of divorce exacerbate that impact.Our goal is to help you through this difficult time. In so doing, it is our approach to minimize the emotional damage, to maximize the preservation of your marital assets, and to allow you to enjoy financial security following your divorce.
To achieve that goal, it is necessary to work together to prepare your case for either settlement or trial. Cases are settled because the other side knows that you will be well represented at trial. However, there is no need to deplete your assets and income in avoidable and unnecessary litigation. The overwhelming majority of our cases reach a satisfactory settlement, but we are no strangers to the courtroom and have tried countless divorce and paternity cases.
