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.

Oftentimes, circumstances substantially change following the completion of a Divorce or Parental Rights family matter, necessitating a modification of the Final Order.  Examples of situations that may warrant a modification include the following:

  • one of the parties has remarried
  • one of the parties experiences a change in income
  • one of the parties begins exhibiting signs of alcohol or drug addiction
  • one of the parties begins exhibiting signs of domestic violence or child abuse or neglect
  • one of the parties is arrested
  • one of the parties wants to relocate in the state or move out of the state
  • one of the parties loses a job
  • one of the parties is experiencing a medical emergency
  • childcare expenses have changed
  • child medical expenses have changed
  • a change in the parent-child visiting schedule is desired
  • child extracurricular activities have changed
  • other disputes have arisen between the parties

If you are unable to come to an agreement with the other party, a Family Law Trial Lawyer can assist you in obtaining a modification by petitioning the Court and arguing that there has been a substantial change in circumstances since the issuing of your Final Order and the requested change is in the best interest of the child. 

In addition, if you are concerned that the other party may request modifications to your Divorce Judgment following your divorce, a Family Law Trial Lawyer can also help you protect your interests before the divorce is finalized.
