Email: Ferris S. Ritchey III ›
Ferris Ritchey has over 35 years of experience in a wide range of legal matters with an emphasis on Domestic Relations, Mediation, Collaborative, Probate and Estate Planning. As a domestic relations attorney, Ferris attempts to resolve complex divorce issues such as custody and property settlement in a manner to avoid litigation if possible. Though parties to a divorce will no longer be husband and wife they will continue to be Mom and Dad attending their child or children’s school functions, ball games, recitals, extra-curricular activities, graduations, weddings and more. To posture a case in a way that results in the destruction of the family is a disservice that should be avoided. This philosophy bodes well in probate matters also. Ferris works closely with trained and experienced health professionals to assist his clients in navigating the perils of divorce and similar type cases. In addition to divorce, the specific areas of Ferris’ family law practice include post-divorce matters such as modifications, contempt or rule nisi, child support and the like.
