Keep your family together.

In an already difficult and draining process, possibly the hardest aspect is negotiating  child custody and visitation. Most parents are operating out of love for their children, but even when both are focused on protection for the child, disputes can arise. Our goal is to provide balanced and honest representation to protect the rights of mothers and fathers that focuses on putting your children first and working for the long term best interest of your family. 

Kristen provided me with excellent representation in a child custody case … Kristen is very personable and was compassionate and caring while dealing with delicate information and high emotions. I would not hesitate to hire Kristen again for any type of legal assistance.

Protect yourself.

If you are under threat by your partner, you don't have to go it alone.  At Stern & Williams, we will guide you through the process of petitioning the court for an  order of protection, which is a temporary  restraining order  granted in cases of domestic abuse.  

In some cases, orders of protection are issued quickly and with little evidence. If someone is petitioning for an order of protection against you, it is  imperative  to obtain legal counsel to challenge the order and protect your rights. There are significant consequences to an order of protection being entered, including criminal charge implications.
