Practical, sharp and creative, clients say that Norm was born to be a lawyer.

In addition to his vast experience handling family legal concerns such as dissolution of marriage, child support, child custody, asset division, prenuptial agreements and post judgment matters, Norm has a strong portfolio of appeal work.
