About Our Family Law Practice

We lead with competence and compassion

At Alaimo Boyer, we are an experienced family law firm that is committed to working with clients who are in need of a resolution. We develop a simple plan of action which honors your non-negotiable terms, promotes equitable compromise, and allows both parties to move forward towards a better future.

We understand the costly impact legal matters can have on a family, and commit ourselves to providing proactive legal support that seeks fair and reasonable resolution.

Our process is simple.

While many attorneys may over promise and under deliver, we feel our clients cannot make informed decisions without understanding the range of potential outcomes. Regardless of how simple your specific case may present, we will ensure that you are prepared for every possible scenario.
