We are a small marital and family law firm where you will receive personalized attention. We are experienced and knowledgeable in all types of family law cases.
We are well aware of the need for a family lawyer to be a tough and aggressive advocate. We are, however, simultaneously aware of the need for a family lawyer to be sensitive to the emotional vulnerability of clients and the impact of divorce on the family. We believe that practicing family law is a balancing act between the duty and obligation to aggressively represent our clients and the simultaneous duty to assist clients in understanding the law and avoiding frivolous or meritless litigation. We believe that our clients should be fully informed and aware of their financial, emotional, and legal obligations to their spouse, the other parent if the parties are not married, and, most importantly, to their children.
We routinely refer our clients to counselors, therapists, financial experts, and other professionals who are qualified to advise them as to how to i how best to navigate and negotiate a divorce or custody battle. We are mindful of the damage nasty and expensive litigation can cause the parties and their minor children and we believe it is our duty to fully advise our clients of other options such as mediation or engaging in the collaborative law process.
We recognize that family legal matters can be one of life’s most traumatic events. We know that being involved in a family law dispute often results in depression, inability to concentrate, work-related issues and other stressors. We make every effort to listen patiently to the needs of clients and to refer clients to appropriate counseling, psychological, and other associated professionals when the need arises. We believe that the primary role of the family law attorney is to help clients remove the emotional cloud of navigating a divorce, custody or family law matter, and to help them make wise decisions regarding their children, finances and other matters when they are least able to do so.
