Guiding Families Through Times of Uncertainty

When a legal concern affects your family, the stakes can be massive. At Barnes & Diehl, our seasoned family law attorneys have decades of experience advocating for clients facing important crossroads in their lives and relationships. We understand what you are up against, but we also believe no two family law problems are the same. Our legal team will take the time to understand your concerns so we can tailor our approach based on your needs.

Our success is not based on how quickly we turn over family law cases. Instead, we take a more personal approach. We believe success can only be measured by our clients’ personal stories. Our legal team offers a hands-on approach to help you successfully move forward. We have the resources, skills and experience necessary to handle the most complex and sensitive cases involving divorce, premarital agreements, complex equitable distribution of marital assets, business and asset valuation, child custody, relocation custody cases, child support, spousal support and adoption.
