Family Law

Timoney Knox’s Family Law Group understands and is sensitive to the trauma felt by clients facing divorce, support or custody proceedings. We recognize that oftentimes clients are not only emotionally vulnerable but can feel overwhelmed by the legal process ahead of them. They need someone they can depend on and trust, and who will protect their interests at all times. We can help.

Our accomplished and award-winning lawyers recognize that each family is unique, and will spend time with you to gain a clear understanding of the issues you and your family are facing. We take great care to achieve our clients’ overall goals as cost effectively as possible. We have a wealth of experience and can advise you on all aspects of divorce, including child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, division of marital property and protection from abuse. Based on our relationships with outside professionals, we can recommend experts such as psychologists, forensic accountants or business valuators to get you the help you need and to put you in a position to be successful in your case.

Our talented family law attorneys are known not only for their ability to successfully and zealously litigate contested matters, but also for effective use of their experience, knowledge and skills to achieve negotiated settlements. Above all, our aim is to protect our clients’ interests by helping to limit the financial and emotional costs of their family dispute.

Because divorce cases frequently involve non-divorce issues, such as corporate, tax, real estate, and estate planning matters, our in-firm capabilities at Timoney Knox allow us to provide a client-focused team approach to address any and all legal issues that arise during the course of our representation.
