What Clients Are Saying About Our Firm:

My family and I met with Mr. Tolin yesterday. He was very friendly, as he came in introduced himself, and spoke with us just like he has known us his whole life. He did not look at us as we were just another person or another payer. He took time listening to what we had to say and explained things to us so that we better understood the process. In most attorney offices, you feel uncomfortable and rushed, but he made you feel welcomed and tried to tell jokes. I will definitely be using Mr. Tolin again and recommend him to other people that may need a good attorney.

At Tolin & Tolin, PLLC, we understand that in family law issues there are often no clear “winners.” This means our goal is to help you get your life back on track, allowing you to move forward.

Family Law

Divorce can be an emotional, difficult time. Even when you recognize your marriage is not working anymore, it can be almost overwhelming to face all the issues that must be dealt with in a divorce. As if divorce is not already difficult enough, when you have minor children, you must also deal with issues related to child custody. The overarching theme of child custody decisions is the best interests of the child. If parents cannot come to a custody decision on their own, a family court judge will make those decisions for them based on a number of factors, but always considering the best interests of the child. At Tolin & Tolin, PLLC, we also deal with family law issues such as spousal support, adoption, asset division, domestic violence, mediation, separation agreements, paternity, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, visitation, and post-divorce modifications. All of these family law issues can potentially be contentious, or even worse, in the case of domestic violence issues. We will work hard to fully represent your best interests.
