What is one thing your clients should know about you?
At our firm, we believe that in the majority of cases, resolving family law disputes
through private agreements specifically tailored to our clients’ needs is preferable
to contested litigation. Our attorneys offer reliable advice and creative solutions,
and seek to handle the complex issues facing our clients using a team approach
that is designed to avoid the extraordinary costs—both monetary and emotional—
of lengthy litigation. We, of course, understand not every case is suitable for private
resolution and our attorneys are prepared to zealously advocate for our clients’
interests at every stage of the process.

What are the most critical steps I should take if facing separation
It is never too early to consult with an attorney to learn about your rights,
obligations and what legal concepts may apply to your situation. A simple
internet search won’t be tailored to your specific case; therefore, early
preparation will help avoid missteps and undesirable outcomes. We often
encounter clients who negotiated with their spouse without consulting an
attorney. In such cases, we frequently discover they’ve agreed to terms contrary
to the law that do not serve their best interests. In addition, be mindful when
sending electronic communications and posting on social media; written
messages sent impulsively can have lasting effects on you or your children.
Seeking guidance from an attorney early on can reduce the likelihood of
making common mistakes.
