We know that it is more beneficial to our clients to amicably resolve conflicts rather than litigate them. In fact, Mr. Wasserman is trained in Collaborative Law to assist those clients interested in a less litigious approach to resolving their case. However, we are prepared to support our clients’ goals through litigation and trial, if necessary.

These are our fields of expertise in Family Law:
