Haynes Kessler Myers & Postalakis

Domestic disputes and family law matters typically involve extremely personal and emotionally heavy topics. These situations can quickly be made worse by inexperienced legal counselors or lawyers who pressure you into contested litigation. At our firm, we do things differently.

The lawyers at Haynes Kessler Myers & Postalakis help clients pursue fair and reasonable solutions to their domestic and family issues, including division of property, alimony, child custody, child support, paternity action, visitation, shared parenting arrangements, and marital agreements (prenuptial and postnuptial). When handling any combination of these topics, we work to negotiate and secure decisions on as many areas as possible before litigating the remaining issues in the courtroom, which can save you time and money. We pride ourselves on the fact that many of our cases are resolved before ever reaching trial. Rest assured, however, our team does have experienced litigators who can empower you through skilled courtroom representation, when necessary.
