Divorce and family law is a field of law that deals with several issues including spouses, children, domestic partners, unmarried couples, same-sex partners and married couples. These cases are not only highly complex but are more often than not emotionally charged because of the subject matter. That is why Attorneys Judy Lansing and Eric Hannum believe family law cases are the most difficult, yet most rewarding areas of law. Only a strong yet compassionate lawyer can competently handle a family law matter and achieve the best resolution for the client.
