The Firm’s practice is focused on (1) business and commercial law and (2) family law and family law related matters. Ms. Halmagean handles business and commercial litigation, formation of companies, divorces whether contested or uncontested and whether handled through the traditional litigious way or through the newer process of resolution called “collaborative law”.
