Family Law: We handle family law related issues on Thursdays.

The briefing is presented on Thursday at 0900 and again at 1300.  You must show up 10 minutes prior to the start of the brief in order to complete an intake form and be allowed to sit in.  Only one spouse may attend the briefing. If the post is on a 2-hour or morning delay due to weather, we will only have one briefing at 1300.

Clients that have previously attended a divorce/separation or have other family-related issues (such as adoption, paternity and custody issues where you are not married to the other parent) may consult an attorney in our office (without first attending a briefing) on a walk-in basis on Thursdays from 0900-1130 and 1300-1630. Availability of an attorney is subject to staffing and number of clients already waiting to see an attorney.
