Hello,

If you are facing new or ongoing family relationship conflicts, we can relate. We empathize and have a deep understanding of what lies ahead mentally, emotionally, and financially.  How? Because we have years of experience in family law and have lived a thousand lifetimes through our clients.

We understand that every story is unique and have developed an approach that
holistically integrates traditional practices with proven modern methods, starting with addressing your emotional wellbeing. Through this process, we become your protector, your confidante, and your voice. If this doesn’t sound like what you want in a lawyer, or sounds too “granola” for you, don’t worry — we are also ferocious litigators whenever you need us to be.

We’ve represented everyone
, from business owners to stay-at-home spouses, from people confident in their own power to those whose voices are underrepresented, including people of color, people with disabilities, domestic violence victims, and people of all genders and sexual orientations. Here’s what some of them have to say:

"They literally saved my children's lives."
- Allysa Howell
"They are absolutely dedicated to helping you walk through fire and come out a phoenix."
- Morgan Whaley
"I wish all attorneys would be so ethical."
~ Alex Hinst (SHE /HER)
