Family law consists of an area of the law that deals with family-related matters and domestic relations. These cases usually involve parties who are related by blood or marriage, but family law can affect those in more distant or casual relationships as well. Due to the emotionally charged nature of most family law cases, it is important to retain a family law attorney with the experience to navigate an ever-changing environment, and who can identify options available. Renowned attorney Gloria Petroni has more than 30 years’ experience as a Nevada State Certified Family Law Specialist.

Our firm has experience in protecting the rights and assets of adult children from being attacked in the case of divorcing spouses, as well as those of minor children. Asset protection trusts are generally a third party trust, set up by one of the parties. This type of trust is generally set up in the case that children are minors and cannot legally accept an inheritance, but can also be established for adult beneficiaries.

Many family law proceeding start as a result of the termination of a marriage.
