There For You At Every Step, Through Every Question And Emotion.
Angelo C. Banks
My passion for family law comes from personal experience. I grew up in a separated home, and today, I raise two sons co-parenting with their mother. We are far from the perfect family, but through well established communication and love for our children, we have managed to make the best of a separation. I have experienced that divorce and child custody does not need to be a fight.
Prior to becoming a family law attorney, I served ten years in the United States Air Force as a Security Forces Member. While going through the intricacies of a military family, I also decided to use any free time I had earning a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling.
It was after my second tour of duty in the military that I decided to combine my passion, experience, and education and become a family law attorney. I am now committed to providing my clients efficient results that support reasonable, significant, and meaningful parenting time, equitable division of property, and a smooth transition into a new chapter of life.
