Family law encompasses adoption, divorce, juvenile court, and all aspects of law surrounding the legal bringing together or breaking apart of family units. Many attorneys will not touch this area of law, as it is perceived as being stressful and full of emotions. It is precisely because this area of law can be so emotional that clients seek out an attorney who can be understanding, while still being aggressive.

Family law is handled in a Court of Equity rather than a Court of Law. What that means is that the judge or jury decides based on what is fair based on the facts rather than on legal technicalities that are found in business law. This ensures that the judge or jury can take all circumstances into account when making a decision. It also means that choosing an attorney that can adequately present your side of the case is essential.
