At Lawrence J. Praeger PC, we represent clients in all family law and related matters, including but not limited to divorce, child custody, property division, modification and enforcement of orders. We also represent Mental Health Professionals in licensing matters,  dealing with the litigation process, HIPAA complaints, and responding to subpoenas for records and testimony.

Attorney / Litigator

Our attorneys are experienced in all areas of family law and related litigation.  We have significant courtroom experience. We do not hesitate to litigate if proceeding to trial is necessary to better serve our clients needs. However, we encourage mediation and collaborative law as tools for dispute resolution.

Expert Witness

We consult and act as an expert witness on the issue of attorney’s fees and expenses. For a set fee, we evaluate attorney’s fees and expenses for our client and the opposing party. If our report is satisfactory, we can then be designated as a testifying witness on your behalf. We are willing to travel statewide.
