Family Law

Family Law in Tupelo, Mississippi

In an ideal world, marriages would last forever and no one would get a divorce. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world, and more than 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. When you are facing a divorce, hire an attorney who not only knows the law, but also will understand what you're going through and fight for your needs.

I know that divorce is one of the most painful experiences someone can go through. I know because I went through it myself not too long ago. From my Okolona, Mississippi, law office, I will do everything I can as your attorney to represent your interests aggressively while remaining empathetic to your needs.

Issues In A Divorce

Divorce involves a lot more than the couple simply separating; many legal, personal and financial issues need to be resolved, like:

Division of assets: I can help you get fair property settlements even if your divorce involves large property values or multiple properties.

Financial support issues: I will fight for your interests regarding child support and spousal support/alimony.

Child custody and child support: These are very draining and emotional issues for people. It is important to know that with some fight, there is a chance to win custody, even for a man.

Divorce As A Last Resort

I tell all of my divorce clients to save the marriage if at all possible. I know the trauma that divorce causes the children and the divorcing couple. As a lawyer, I would much rather lose the business than help someone end a marriage that might otherwise be saved. If my clients are uncertain about divorce, I strongly and frequently recommend marriage counseling.

Sometimes, of course, a marriage simply cannot be saved. When that happens, I will represent you with empathy and tenacity, fighting for your interests every step of the way. I really am an attorney who cares about my clients.
