Family law consists of divorce (dissolution) and the issues that go with it, including child support (which includes medical costs and daycare reimbursement), spousal maintenance (alimony), property division and debt allocation. These issues also frequently arise in “post-decree” (i.e. post-divorce) actions, as well as in motions for modification. In addition, I have extensive experience in the area of paternity cases, which have similar issues as divorce. I am also very experienced in domestic abuse restraining order proceedings (Orders for Protection). I no longer handle cases involving contested custody.
I have extensive experience in divorce, paternity, and motion practice in Anoka, Hennepin, Sherburne, and Wright counties. My practice also frequently gets me before the judges of Ramsey, Isanti, Dakota, and Carver counties.
I represent men, as well as women, with equal vigor, and have obtained very satisfactory results for many clients. A good deal of my practice is referrals from satisfied clients. My practice is split about 50-50, representing men and women.
From 1998 through 2007 I was the newsletter editor for R-KIDS, which was a non-custodial parents’ group. I get many referrals from that organization, as well as from the Men’s Defense Association. Thus, I have special sympathies for those who can’t see their kids as much as they’d like. Nevertheless, because I have learned many tricks of the trade over the years, I can play either side of the fence equally well.
