Area of Practice:
Selecting an attorney to represent you in a family law matter is one of the most significant decisions that you will make during a particularly emotional time in your life.
You must be able to relate to your attorney and be able to understand each other. Nothing and no one can substitute for you making your own well-informed decisions during the dissolution process.
It is the attorney’s job to make sure that you understand your options. It is also the responsibility of an attorney to advise the client of the fees and costs associated with those options. Timely fee and cost information is vital to a client’s being well-informed. If your matter cannot be settled, it is the attorney’s job to evaluate trial strategy and to vigorously represent you in the litigation process.
Being aggressive and fighting on every issue is not necessarily as effective for you as it is enriching to your attorney. You do not need an attorney to make or maintain his reputation on your case. You need an attorney of good reputation to preserve and protect you and your children and to maximize your financial interests at risk.
Many matters settle out of Court, especially when knowledgeable attorneys represent both parties. I am a trial attorney with thirty years of experience. I have the ability and experience to evaluate strategy, ensure that you are well informed and bring your matter to an effective conclusion.
