A divorce can be one of the most traumatic events in a person’s life. This is also true of other family and child related disputes, such as contested adoptions, child support, or conflicts involving custody or visitation.
Our firm’s goal is to secure the best result possible for our clients, with the least amount of emotional and financial damage. We will, if necessary, aggressively fight for our clients at court hearings. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience, and a history of success, in family law court proceedings. But hearings often impose a large cost, in terms of money, time and emotion. This is especially true when children are involved.
The philosophy of our firm is to work toward a peaceful solution, but prepare for battle if necessary. We often find that our degree of preparation for trial will prompt the opposing party to agree to a reasonable resolution. Our lawyers are skilled at negotiating and drafting settlement agreements, court orders, and judgments for the benefit of our clients.
This approach has allowed us to become experts at efficiently guiding our clients through all varieties of family law disputes. These run the gamut from friendly uncontested divorces, to highly conflicted and complex divorces involving custody battles or the valuation and division of family businesses.
You will find our lawyers are down to earth individuals who will treat you with respect. We explain the legal process and the law in plain English. However, we also know that there is more to family law than explaining the law and going to court. We strive to provide understanding, but also objective guidance and advice, to clients who must make important decisions while suffering from emotional turmoil.
If you have decided to file for divorce or other family related litigation, or even if you just have questions regarding your legal options or rights, please contact us. We will often provide brief consultations on family law matters for which there is no charge unless you retain us.
