Providing Aggressive and Individualized Representation of
Clients' Rights in Family Law Matters

A divorce, child custody case or other family law case does not always have to be a combative experience. Even when the issues are complex, your future is at stake and emotions are running high, I will work hard to protect your legal rights while avoiding unnecessary conflict.

To that end, I strive to keep family law litigation civil – while never sacrificing my clients’ rights or interests. As an experienced Des Moines Family Law Attorney, I offer focused, attentive service to clients for family law cases involving:

  • Divorce
  • Division of Assets and Debt
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Enforcement of Support
  • Child Custody and Visitation
  • Shared Physical Custody
  • Joint LegalCcustody
  • Establishment of Paternity
  • Adoption
  • Stepparent Adoption
  • Prenuptial Agreements
  • Post-Decree Modifications

As a skilled Des Moines Family Law Attorney, I provide family law clients with experienced, principled, and aggressive representation. I pledge to always advocate zealously on each client’s behalf, maintaining the highest standards of professional legal service. However, I also understand that domestic relationships usually must continue in some form after the litigation is over.

In representing clients for divorce, I prefer to look at the big picture. I go into domestic relations litigation with a boxer’s mentality. That means I fight hard, but I play by the rules so that afterwards we can all still shake hands. In addition, I am dedicated to the highest standards of quality and service. I roll up my sleeves and dig into each case, promptly returning phone calls in an effort to make each client feel like they’re the only one I’ve got.

You can be assured that your case will be handled by me, and not handed off down the line to an associate like at a larger firm. My Firm also employs a qualified team of legal assistants to make sure that all work is completed in a timely and efficient manner.

From the Firm's office in Des Moines, I represent clients from Central and Southern Iowa, including Adair County, Boone County, Clarke County, Dallas County, Greene County, Guthrie County, Jasper County, Hamilton County, Hardin County, Lucas County, Madison County, Mahaska County, Marion County, Marshall County, Monroe County, Polk County, Poweshiek County, Story County, Union County, Warren County, Webster County, Waterloo County, and the cities of  Ames, Boone, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Indianola, Iowa City,  Knoxville, Marshalltown, Nevada, Newton, Ottumwa, and Oskaloosa.
