Divorce and Family Law | DeWitt LLP Law Firm
When faced with a legal issue that impacts your family, you need first-rate legal representation. Our family law attorneys are consistently named by local, state, and national organizations as the best in their field. Whether you are seeking advice on an impending divorce, a dispute over custody and placement of children, a child support or maintenance issue, or need guidance through an upcoming adoption, our attorneys have the experience you need.
We provide a wide variety of services covering family law issues including divorce, paternity, child placement and custody, child support and maintenance, adoption, surrogacy, prenuptial agreements, guardianships, nursing home issues, and more. While many cases are resolved through negotiation, mediation, or other alternatives, we are also skilled litigators at both the trial court and appellate court level.
We also offer services and resources which smaller firms simply can’t provide, such as access to in-house tax attorneys, bankruptcy attorneys, business attorneys, and estate planners as appropriate. For clients with substantial financial issues or complex business interests, this experience and access assures that issues such as tax consequences, preservation of business interests, intellectual property rights, and more are addressed properly and efficiently.
Family law matters often impact important personal issues such as child custody and placement, adoption, and dissolution of long-term relationships. We know that these areas are more than just legal issues—they are often life-changing personal events. No matter what the circumstance, we will represent you with expertise, sensitivity, care, and respect. Our reputation often encourages reasonable resolutions to these sensitive issues, but, when necessary, we have the experience you need for effective litigation in the courtroom.
Our family law attorneys in Madison, Brookfield and Minneapolis have state-wide practices and have represented clients throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota and in the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.
