Divorce & Custody

Yours. Mine. Our Children.

The breakup of a marriage is painful, and emotion can rule the day.  I care about my clients and their families and I’ve helped many families through this difficult time. I’m an experienced divorce lawyer and can walk you through your legal rights to ensure that you are fully protected. Our first consultation meeting is free.


“What’s Yours is Mine and What’s Mine is Mine” 

A contested divorce is the most complicated of divorces because it involves spouses that can’t come to an agreement on one or many issues of their divorce, like the division of marital property and debts, child custody, child support and alimony.


“What’s Yours is Yours and What’s Mine is Mine”

An uncontested divorce is the least complicated way to split up. You’ve come to an agreement on how to divide up your belongings and assets and if there are children, you’ve come to a decision on child custody, child support, and alimony that you can both live with.


“The Kids Are Mine. You’ll Never See Them Again.”

The legal issues surrounding the custody and support of your children are the most misunderstood and can be the the most frightening issues you may ever face. Can you lose your children? What circumstances would lead to this outcome?




I’ve been helping families find a path to equitable distribution of marital assets for nearly two decades.  My approach is straightforward, yet compassionate.  We will discuss your needs and then we’ll work to find a plan that aligns your legal reality and your options with your expectations.

“I’ve had a long battle for custody of my two children.  Things were in a mess with my case by the time I met with Tommy.  He never promised me anything, but gave me hope and even managed to get a smile out of during the initial consultation.  My situation isn’t perfect, but I have much more of a sense of control than I had before.”

-Molly S.

“Tommy really listened to me when we met for the first time. I felt I’d been heard.  He was present and available throughout my divorce.  I’d have made some terrible decisions right at the beginning if I hadn’t sat down with him as soon as I knew my marriage was ending.”

-Kevin L.

“My wife had already seen a lawyer and made a plan to get custody of my son before I even knew there was anything going on.  I called Tommy in a panic and he immediately talked me down and helped me to see I wouldn’t be able to think straight until I calmed down.  He made time for me the next morning to meet him in his office.  I came out of that meeting knowing that he was the right person to help me.”
