Ford Family Law attorneys believe that successful outcomes depend on big-picture thinking, tough advice and expert court advocacy when necessary.

The optimal path forward

Family law matters are complex, so an effective and time-tested process is critical. We’ve spent over 20 years perfecting our approach. What are the do’s and don’t’s of custody during a divorce? What tax implications need to be considered? How do we begin to unravel shared assets? We keep clients on track and informed about the issues they need to consider—and the decisions they need to make—from day one.
