I am attorney Andrea E. Hirsch. I specialize in family law because it gives me a chance to use my legal expertise to help individuals in their time of greatest need. I understand the mental and emotional strain generated by the end of a marriage. My goal is to take away some of the stress and make the process easier.

Working Together To Find Solutions

The breakup of a marriage involves many difficult issues. During my almost 20 years of practice, I've come to believe that negotiation, collaborative practices and mediation are valuable alternatives to litigation. These approaches encourage couples to recognize their mutual interests — and that of their children — and work toward solutions in a nonconfrontational way. These tools not only often produce better outcomes, but smooth this difficult transition.

However, these alternative approaches to dispute resolution do not work in every case. When necessary to protect your financial interests and parental rights, I will take your case to trial. I am a skilled litigator.

In addition to helping clients with issues arising out of the dissolution of their marriages, I also handle other family matters, such as prenuptial and antenuptial agreements, domestic partnerships and civil unions, guardianship, adoption, paternity, and domestic violence and abuse.

Resolution of these difficult, painful matters with a minimum of personal damage and expense requires professional help that brings to the task experience, specialized training, empathy and an unwavering commitment to my clients' interests and goals.
