The dissolution of a marriage often brings about many uncertainties. I can help guide you through complex issues such as division of property, alimony, child support, and custody arrangements. If meditation provides an alternative to litigation, I can represent your interests and work to bring a successful resolution.
Adoptions allow families to secure legal responsibility for a child. I offer services to help establish parental rights. I have successfully finalized second parent adoptions, private adoptions, and contested adoptions.
I strongly believe in the mediation process over litigation, when at all possible. I am a certified mediator and can represent your interest or be a neutral mediator negotiating with two parties. Mediation is often faster, less expensive, and less stressful than other alternatives.
An estate plan should be flexible enough to adapt to your family's changing needs. I can help you determine which legal documents are important for your situation. I do wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills, and guardianships. I can also provide assistance with probate.
Same sex couples may have different legal needs, although this area of the law is evolving rapidly. I understand the complexity of Utah's laws with respect to the LGBT community and their families.
