Family Law

At Carella Byrne, our family law attorneys recognize that the issues involved in divorce, child custody, property division, and related matters implicate far more than the law. They strike at the very heart of people’s lives, triggering intense emotions alongside worry and uncertainty about what the future will look like for themselves and their children.

Practical and Experienced

That is why we complement our legal acumen and advocacy skills with counsel that considers the practical impact of family law disputes. When we craft prenuptial agreements, establish parenting arrangements, and negotiate divorce settlements, we do so with the goal of providing clarity and peace of mind, ensuring fairness and equity, and positioning our clients and their children for a brighter future.

Our family law representation extends beyond divorce to all of the ancillary issues that can arise before a couple weds, while their marriage is ending, and long after the ink dries on a final divorce decree. We work with high net-worth individuals and those with complex portfolios of assets to create prenuptial agreements that secure their financial interests. Our attorneys also possess the extensive knowledge and experience needed to assess, unwind, and distribute a couple’s intertwined assets in a way that is transparent, fair, and favorable to our clients.

We know that even the most amicable divorces involve intense feelings. Often, anger, resentment, and feelings of betrayal cloud judgment and make it difficult for the parties to address and resolve issues in a productive and rational manner. Carella Byrne’s family law attorneys always look for approaches that can reduce hostility, minimize needless conflict, and facilitate agreement, whether through negotiations, mediation, or collaborative divorce.

But conflict is sometimes unavoidable, and the divide between spouses may too wide for such resolutions. When that happens, we stand ready to vigorously advocate for our clients in the courtroom to protect and advance their interests.
