The firm’s lawyers have diverse backgrounds and different areas of expertise. The lawyers have developed a familiarity with the many domestic law issues from continuing legal education, negotiating and settling matters, and by trial of family law cases time and time again. The firm maintains a statewide practice and, having appeared before the judges in most judicial districts in the state, the lawyers have insight on how the various courts have ruled on particular issues.
Legal issues are complex. The frequent changes in state and federal laws may affect your case. You should hire attorneys who will recognize the issues in your case, know the recent changes in the law, and are sensitive to the difficult process you are undergoing.
What you really pay us for is independent advice. Every case has strengths and weaknesses; clients have both realistic and unrealistic goals and expectations. You would not expect a physician to tell you what you want to hear about test results. You want a realistic diagnosis and prognosis. That is what we, as lawyers, owe to you. Our advice may not be what you want to hear, but it will be straightforward. And, if you want a “second opinion,” we invite you to seek it. The attorney-client relationship must be one with which you are comfortable at all times.
We look forward to working with you.
