Effective Advocacy In or Out Of Court

In these complex and contentious disputes, our aim is to keep the proceedings as amicable and as simple as possible. If you have children, your chosen approach will affect your future relationship as co-parents, and a practical parenting agreement is almost always preferable to a judge’s edict.

Whichever course your family law matter takes, Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., will treat you with respect, compassion and honesty.
