Divorce Attorneys Committed to Meeting Client Goals and Expectations
Family law is inherently emotional. Clients have no idea what they may or may not be entitled to under the law. This is why it is imperative to set realistic expectations for clients. We listen to clients’ goals, educate them on the law, and set expectations accordingly. This allows clients to enter the proceeding with a better idea of what to expect.
Our philosophy is to work hard to negotiate the best settlement possible, recognizing that mutual concessions will be necessary for a case to settle. Most cases do settle short of trial in some form of mediation. But we are prepared to take cases to trial if mediation is unsuccessful.
