Evan Compton is a divorce and family law associate with the Law Offices of Joshua E. Stern.

Evan discovered family law through his interest in adoption. His passion for legal research and family law has made him a fierce and thorough advocate. Due to his experience and training, Evan is able to sympathetically and carefully guide families through their domestic relations matters.
