Law Office of Ann B. Howard, APC

This Law Firm represents clients in all kinds of family matters, including divorce, child custody, child/spousal support, property division, post-divorce modifications to custody and/or support, enforcement, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.

We pride ourselves on trying to resolve cases to avoid creating conflict for the children or putting them “in the middle.”  The cases may be litigated or mediated cases.  The goal is to decrease tension to protect children.  However, if that’s impossible, The Firm will aggressively litigate on its client’s behalf.

The Firm also handles personal bankruptcies and does wills and trusts.  In short, if it touches a family, we handle it.
