Practice State



I am continually fascinated and intrigued by the practice of family law. The landscape changes frequently. We work amidst a tight-knit community of professional problem-solvers and each case is an opportunity to grow those relationships and sharpen each other's skills. We have the rare opportunity to work with people at their best and sometimes at their worst. Each day brings something new.


All aspects of family law litigation and mediation. Mr. Bugni also conducts family law mediations and arbitrations for other attorneys.
