All legal proceedings concerning the family involve the lives of those people closest to us. They are often emotionally charged with strong feelings of sadness, regret, fear, frustration and anger. There is almost always a sense of uncertainty about the future. When a family requires a legal proceeding involving divorce, custody, support, property and debt distribution, or domestic violence, the family is usually experiencing a level of stress second only to the passing of a loved one. These problems require immediate and thoughtful representation. The circumstances of a family law matter may require a delicate approach, diplomacy, or very aggressive advocacy and representation. Our firm’s job is to critically assess every individual family law matter to ensure we understand precisely what our client wants us to accomplish. With that understanding, we craft an approach using methods as conciliatory as negotiation and mediation or as aggressive as trial to reach a final resolution that meets our clients’ goals and allows them to move on with their life.
