Whenever possible Bryan believes in negotiation to achieve workable custody solutions. Custody and visitation arrangements reached this way can reduce conflict and stress, and can keep legal costs low.

Bryan will work closely with you to understand your needs and those of your children. Then he will work to achieve the solution that is right for you.

Contested Child Custody Cases

Our firm represents parents and grandparents in contested custody cases. We are dedicated advocates who will work to build a strong and effective case for you. If necessary, our firm will undertake vigorous litigation in court to achieve your goals and to protect your rights.

If the other parent is trying to remove your child to a distant location, we can seek a emergency restraining order preventing the removal. We can then seek to resolve the situation in a satisfactory manner.
