Welcome to Modern Law. If you are here, you probably need help. Whether it’s information, resources, guidance, legal coaching, or legal representation, we have more family law resources designed specifically for you than you can find anywhere else.

Others need a lawyer who is behind the scenes providing drafting, strategy, and advice. We also offer mediation and strongly believe that wherever possible people should make decisions between themselves and not allow a judge to decide the future of their lives. We serve family law clients at all ends of the spectrum and every step in between.
