Rhonda knows that cases often change course during the divorce process. While a case may start out amicably, the client may need more aggressive representation if critical issues, such as custody, child support or, equitable distribution, or spousal support, cannot be amicably resolved.  Rhonda is adept at recognizing the need to change course in a case, and to implement the changes necessary to protect her clients’ interests.

Family Life & Wealth Planning (Estate Planning) is important for families who have gone through a divorce and for families who have children from past relationships.  Rhonda guides clients through the process of creating and/or updating their Family Life & Wealth Plan after divorce.
