Children First: Counseling through the Conciliation Court

Our law firm has extensive experience in developing and negotiating parenting time agreements that are in the best interest of your child while also protecting your rights.  Our highly skilled custody lawyers provide representation in the negotiation, mediation and litigation of disputes related to a variety of child custody issues including visitation, living arrangements, move-aways and parental decision-making regarding your child’s education, religion and medical care.

Our firm believes it is the efficacy of negotiated and mediated custody agreements that ensure your child’s best interests are served while meeting your goals and concerns.  This approach allows us to ensure that you have input and control in arriving at an agreed-upon parenting schedule, which often results in a better custody arrangement for the child and better dynamics between you and the other parent and helps avoid costly litigation in the future. However, if it is not possible to reach an agreement and court is the only avenue of resolution, we will aggressively represent you in court.

A Family Law Office for all of Henderson

Nevada’s child custody laws can be particularly complex. Our Henderson based custody attorneys have more than four decades of combined experience. We answer your questions and explain complex family law in easy to understand terms.

Common Concerns:

  • The impact of a parent having to move away

  • Stepparents and/or grandparents' rights to visitation and custody

  • The effect of a protracted divorce trial on custody arrangements

  • Domestic partnership or same sex dissolution and custody details

  • How accusations or a conviction of domestic violence may influence a custody arrangement

  • How educational, medical and other important decisions are impacted by custody arrangements

In our mobile society, move-aways are a common problem that arises during or after a divorce occurs.  The term “move-away” refers to situations where one parent seeks relocation, with a child, of a significant distance, typically as the result of changing life circumstances. It is Nevada’s public policy that frequent and continuing contact with both parents is in the best interest of the child(ren). Move-away custody issues can become contentious disputes without careful, insightful intervention.  Our firm has the experience and knowledge to help guide you in this process.

Our Henderson child custody attorneys have represented many clients on both sides of these conflicts. We can assist you whether you are considering relocating with your child or you want to keep your children from relocating with their other parent.


We understand how clients in family law proceedings become frustrated when they are unable to communicate with their attorney. Open lines of communication are available for our clients. We continually advise them each step of the way on what we are doing to assist them in resolving their cases.

We approach every family law case with integrity, dignity and compassion. When you retain us, you are going to receive individualized attention until your matter is resolved. We’re strong advocates for our clients and their families, and we will aggressively but professionally protect the best interests of you and your children.
