Understanding Your Needs

As you approach the challenging transition of life whether its the dissolution of your marriage, child custody issues or adoption you know that you need experienced, innovative legal guidance and representation.


Trust & Compassion

You also want to be able to trust your attorney not only as an ethical, respected officer of the court, but also as an advisor who understands the importance of your legal issue, and who genuinely cares about your outcome. The capacity for human compassion is sometimes as important as the expertise and assertiveness you expect from your attorney.


Avoid Court

You need an attorney who listens, provides a realistic assessment of potential outcomes, develops a strategy, who creates an innovative solution for your specific problem, and who executes it, following through to a successful outcome. Many legal issues and disputes can be resolved amicably through alternative means. In fact, many of our cases are settled without ever going to court. This is a huge benefit to you. Litigation is expensive, time consuming and emotionally draining. Proactive strategic planning, alternative dispute resolution and negotiation are frequently the preferred means of resolving issues for many of our clients. And, clients who participate actively in the resolution process have significantly higher levels of satisfaction with the outcome.


Assertive & Articulate

While we avoid court when possible, sometimes litigation in court cannot be avoided. If the need arises, your attorney should be able to provide assertive, articulate leadership, and assertive representation in litigation. When a dispute cannot be resolved by other means, there is no substitute for seasoned courtroom experience and outstanding litigation skills.
