Everyone at our firm knows that managing family issues is difficult and we recognize that our clients are likely to experience anxiety and fear of the unknown. Attorneys are available to speak with our clients directly and are honest when we provide a legal opinion, even if it is not what a client wants to hear. We work hard to explain the legal process in order to demystify a client’s case.
We also recognize that clients have different values and priorities and that each case is different. Our firm prides itself on listening to each client’s concerns, evaluating their needs and then suggesting an optimal course of action within the parameters of the law. Our goal is to get you the result you want by using the most efficient and effective legal means.
Our firm believes the best approach to solving family law issues is through different methods of Alternate Dispute Resolution, such as mediation, negotiation or by using the collaborative approach. Family law is unique in that people on opposite sides of a case often have to forge an on-going relationship for years after their case has ended. Clients who have children do not have the luxury of not seeing their former spouse ever again. The various methods of Alternate Dispute Resolution are usually more cost effective than litigation and help preserve family relationships. A majority of our cases are settled outside of court.
That being said, when a party might not be willing to compromise or is not complying with the law, litigation might be necessary. If a client needs to go to court, our attorneys are experienced litigators, know the law, and are familiar with the judges.
