Family Law & Domestic Relations

The Family Law Practice of Woodburn and Wedge addresses the legal and financial interests of individuals and families in connection with all aspects of family law, including pre-marriage planning and the dissolution of marriage. The attorneys of the Family Law Group are known not only for their ability to successfully litigate contested matters, but also for effective use of their experience, knowledge and talents to achieve negotiated settlements. In fact, there are attorneys in the firm who dedicate a large part of their practice to mediation of family law matters.

The structure of the firm is unique and permits our attorneys to concentrate on particular practice areas within family and matrimonial law, such as complex litigation, including litigation involving divorce, legal separation and annulment; financial discovery, analysis and planning; negotiated settlements; premarital and postnuptial agreements; marital and separation agreements; cohabitation agreements; surrogacy and reproductive law; custody, visitation and parent/child relocation; complex property division; maintenance/alimony and child support; retirement plans and benefits; parentage; domestic violence and orders of protection; post-divorce disputes; and appellate practice.

The attorneys of the Family Law Group often use a team approach to manage cases efficiently and provide effectual results for clients. Instead of each lawyer working independently on cases, our much used team approach assures clients ready access to a team of several attorneys with knowledge and understanding of their case. Clients benefit in working with a team of lawyers with varied backgrounds and particular experience dealing with business issues and financial planning as needed to best resolve their case. The Family Law Group’s ability to service individual and family group clients on a personal level is similar to that of a boutique firm except that we have access to the firm’s other practice groups and thus have the ability to effectively handle all the sophisticated needs of the client.
