Steve and Renee were great to work with! Very professional and realistic. Gave no false expectations or predictions. They communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again if ever needed! Thank you, Steve and your team!


For my family law case, Steve Smith had a very strong presence and was dominant in the courtroom. The manner in which he carries out cases is something you see in the movies. He was really animated and passionate about my case. His military background is a big asset, and he really helped me out. I would highly recommend him.


We hired Leah M. Baldacci for a family law case and she was so extremely helpful and got me through my case. She’s very professional and takes the time to listen to her clients. She’s a wonderful advocate and a fantastic attorney. If you’re looking for a great attorney, I recommend Leah. Thank you so much for your legal help.

Anonymous Client

I’ve hired Steve for two cases, and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with.


I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court, but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained, and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children.

Attorney Steve Smith recently won an “omitted property” case involving a divorce from 1984. The divorce occurred while the husband was still in the military, just after Congress passed The Former Spouses Protection Act.

Steve was able to win this case for our client and she is now receiving her fair share of the pension plan.

How a Divorce Trial Lawyer Can Help

Most divorces involve complex issues regarding property, children, or other assets.  A Divorce Trial Lawyer will expertly advise you through these issues.

A Divorce Trial Lawyer will help you review all the property owned by the divorcing parties. Your Trial Lawyer will help you determine whether the property is “marital property” and subject to equitable distribution between the parties by the Court, or “non-marital property” that may be set aside for one party and not considered during further distribution. Your Divorce Trial Lawyer will negotiate or make arguments on your behalf regarding how the property should be distributed between the parties.

A Divorce Trial Lawyer will also advise you on whether Spousal Support should be paid by one former spouse to the other. There are five types of Spousal Support:

  1. General Support
  2. Transitional Support
  3. Reimbursement Support
  4. Nominal Support
  5. Interim Support

Your Trial Lawyer will advise you on the differences between each of these options for Spousal Support and argue whether one or more types of Spousal Support should be ordered by the Court.

Often child issues arise during a divorce regarding where the children will primarily live, a parent-child visitation schedule, and how holidays and vacations will be shared between the parents and child support. It is important to discuss these issues with your Divorce Trial Lawyer so that these issues can be contemplated at the time of divorce. Dealing with child issues at the time of divorce can prevent future disputes involving your children in the future.
