Family Law

Family Law deals with the formation and the conclusion of relationships that humans hold most precious. How we structure relationships with life partners, continue them (with or without children), and end them can result in a roller coaster of intense emotions. Whether a positive life change or a negative one, there can be many complicated issues to unravel, impacting the things we value most: children, money, and property.

At Jaffe, we understand the intensity of those emotions and that no two relationships are alike. From the joys of a pre-nuptial arrangement to the frustration, fear, and anger that can come with divorce and child custody negotiations, we appreciate your need for a strong and experienced counselor by your side. We are dedicated to helping people in the midst of their most difficult times attain the best possible outcomes for themselves and their children. We are experienced and expert in every aspect of family law, from pre-filing counseling and negotiation to post-judgment enforcement and modification of judgments. We avoid contested litigation whenever possible and are formidable litigators when necessary. We are highly-skilled in appeals processes, both in defending trial court orders or fixing trial court errors.

Our attorneys skillfully handle divorces for clients with estates of all sizes, having the benefit of Jaffe’s tax, corporate, and benefits departments on hand to structure favorable property settlements and other agreements affecting your property rights. We know that your children are most important to you — we are parents ourselves – and we will skillfully advise you in all of your child custody and parenting time issues. We will listen to you and we will work diligently and tirelessly to help you achieve the resolution that is the best possible one for you and your family.
