At McDermott Law Offices, PLLC, we offer compassionate and practical guidance through these difficult times. We work hard to help families resolve their issues, restore relationships, and move forward. Our firm provides representation in many family law issues with various resolution methods based on your needs and circumstances,

We are committed to you through divorce while protecting your financial and personal interests. We do this by addressing the following:
- Drafting and filing necessary legal documents
- Negotiating with opposing counsel to settle disputes

- Enforcing orders already issued by the court
For our clients who are parents, we work hard to help you address the impact of divorce on your children and minimize any potential harm.
