Family law deals with our most intimate relationships. Husband and wife. Mother and Father. Father and Child. Mother and Child. Siblings. Grandparents. Grandchildren. When these relationships break down we leave it up to a pile of laws and a stranger in a black robe to take something broken and try to make sense of it to create something stable for the future. The decisions made in family court can affect the rest of your life. Family law a strange, imperfect and often ugly and painful way to figure out incredibly important issues like who the kids will live with, the kind of relationship parents can have with their children and how to divide marital property. It’s important that you have an advocate on your side in dealing with this imperfect family judicial system who will stand up for your rights and guide you through this process.
My approach to practicing family law is to treat each case individually and manage each client’s resources efficiently. I know your situation is different from my other clients’ situations. We need to tailor our objectives and apply the law to your specific needs rather than treat your case with a cookie-cutter approach. If we can be reasonable and respectful in accomplishing your goals then that is what we will do. If we need to be more aggressive to protect your rights then that is what we will do. It is never my goal to create conflict for the purposes of running up a bill but sometimes that conflict is unavoidable to protect your rights.
