Michael Tease Law
Learn how we support
Our firm is dedicated to the practice of Family Law. We define Family Law as a legal practice focused on issues involving family relationships and family assets.
Family relationships include concerns such as adoption, divorce, child custody, guardianships, and others. It also includes legal issues that become important as we age. Often this area of Law is referred to as Elder Law. Elder Law covers financial and health care issues you or your family may face if your health declines.
Family assets involve any asset owned by one or both spouses and ordinarily used by a spouse or minor child of either spouse for a family purpose, for example, the matrimonial home, furniture, and car. Often the family assets are referred to as the Marital Estate. In a divorce, the family assets are equitably distributed, but not necessarily equally distributed. In the case of death, the assets are bequeathed by testamentary succession, a will for example, or operation of Law if no will is present.

The Chess Knight Explained
Family Lawyers confront daily the family wreckage caused by alcohol, drug abuse, neglect, and other factors. Police raids may generate the headlines, but the real story of devastation is told in the law office and domestic courtrooms.
Consequently, Family Lawyers must possess the wit, the tools, and the resolve to protect their clients in times of crisis, and they must use every legal strategy available to achieve the best outcome possible.
That is why we chose the Chess Knight as the symbol of our law firm. The Chess Night is the most versatile piece on the board. It can move in eight different directions, over obstacles, and it’s always unexpected.
The Chess Knight is a formidable weapon, and so is your law firm.
