This includes specific experience with complex and high net worth divorces, such as deferred compensation, prenuptial agreements, and valuation of businesses and professional practices. Our practice extends to all matters of family law, including paternity, domestic violence restraining orders, parent relocation, post-judgment modifications, enforcement actions and third-party custody or visitation.

This experience and knowledge enable Rajeh to serve his clients effectively throughout all stages of their matters. Amanda E.
