Although most divorce, custody and other family law cases are resolved through settlement, there are times when court litigation is necessary. Did you know that many divorce and family law attorneys have minimal trial experience? This is because preparing for and successfully taking a case to trial requires a different skill set than simple negotiation.
I approach each divorce, custody and family law case with the same mindset. Resolution through negotiation outside of contested litigation is always attempted first but if that fails, I aggressively prepare for trial. I advise and educate my clients on the issues, options and potential outcomes so each client is able to make an informed decision on how they wish to proceed.
For the majority of divorce, custody or family law cases, I believe the more issues that can be resolved outside of court, the better for my client. This is in part due to the financial and emotional toll the litigation process can have. There are times when issues can’t be resolved however, and when that happens, I believe you need an experienced divorce and family law attorney that has actual trial experience. Trials are complex and formal events and are the most complex part of any divorce or custody case. I have witnessed many cases end in disastrous results because of inexperienced or ineffective counsel.
I have significant trial experience in both divorce and other family law matters including custody, grandparent visitation and guardianship cases. Working with a boutique firm like mine means you won’t be passed off onto another attorney. I believe in personally assisting and advising my clients through the litigation process and I value the relationships I develop with my clients.
