The practice of family law covers a broad range of legal issues, including divorce, child custody, alimony, child support, paternity, fathers' rights, grandparents' rights and domestic violence. I have the knowledge and experience to help your family find solutions that work for you. If you are facing a divorce, you have many important decisions to make. I understand that this is an emotional time, so I will help you focus on the legal and financial details. My goal is to provide the information you need to make good decisions for yourself and your family. Because a trial is a very expensive, lengthy procedure, many people in West Virginia choose mediation to resolve family law issues. I am a West Virginia Supreme Court approved mediator. I have helped many families talk through their differences and reach agreements on divorce, custody and many other issues.
