At AP Lawyers, our mission is to help make peoples’ family lives better! It really is that simple.
Sometimes it could be drafting a Cohabitation Agreement for that couple in love who are so excited to be moving in together. At other times, parties are getting married and are unafraid of having that difficult conversation about money. We help them see how a marriage contract can help them determine on their terms how their property should be divided if unfortunately, there is a breakdown in the relationship. Our clients feel empowered that they are defining their terms but most importantly, that they can trust each other and not have to worry. They can simply enjoy their married life.
At other times, better family life means separating and/or getting a divorce for any number of reasons. We help our clients negotiate a favorable settlement. If litigation is necessary, AP Lawyers team of diverse lawyers are zealous advocates. We make the law work for our clients. We are relentless in pursuit of our clients’ objectives while also ensuring our clients understand the pros and cons of their positions.Read More
