About Us


From very different personal and professional backgrounds, we converged on a simple idea: representing individuals is, at its best, uniquely challenging and supremely rewarding. Individual client advocacy requires subtlety, ingenuity, and tact. We were surprised to find that the exacting standards of corporate legal practice did not always seem to apply to individual client services generally, or to family law in particular. Together, we resolved to start a firm that challenged this model, and to bring our broad analytical and practical skills — and plain intellectual firepower — to the service of individual clients.

We do not promise results we can't deliver, and we will advise you frankly about the risks and likely outcomes of any negotiation or litigation with which we assist you.

What we can promise is that we understand your problems. We know that they exist in a matrix that includes your business, your personal life, and your reputation. Whether you are in finance, media, medicine, venture capital, stay-at-home parenting, academia, law, or mountain-climbing, we get your legal challenges and how they fit into — and affect — the rest of your life.

We have a deep understanding of traditional litigation and transactional legal work, including sophisticated motion practice and appeals. Beyond the boundaries of technical legal practice, we anticipate problems before they arise, which often enables us to prevent crises altogether. Ideally, this leads us to quick and satisfactory resolution. We remain scrupulously attuned to the motivations and approaches of our adversaries, foreseeing strategies and tactics so that we're able to advise, protect, and fortify our clients even in very high-conflict matters. Our clients are rarely surprised by the strategies or tactics we encounter.
