This is an experienced group of lawyers who have practiced in the family law field for an average of 20 years. We observed and participated in a system of divorce litigation that we felt was unsuitable for a reasonable, intelligent person who wants to maintain family relationships and control their own destiny. Unlike the typical lawsuit, the participants likely will have family ties that they wish to keep. Litigation often damages or irrevocably severs those ties. Children are too important, in our opinion, to risk harming in the litigation process.
You, are too important. You do not need to have all the negative aspects of the marriage discussed in the public forum of a courtroom. If an issue needs to be addressed that is unflattering to one party, the group may addressed it; but from a problem solving approach. Remember, our members have each witnessed over 20 years of hearings and trials. Each of us believes that Judges are disinterested in the so called fault issues. We want to help you focus and resolve the important issues, your finances and your children, in a constructive fashion.
For this reason, our group has embraced the collaborative approach. We hold your meetings in the privacy of our offices, at times that are convenient to all. We encourage you to speak to your friends that have gone through a divorce. Most of them will tell you that they spent an average of 3 to 5 hours at the courthouse and actually discussed their issues for a period of 30 minutes or less during that time. The bill however would be for the 3 to 5 hours of lawyers’ time.
Contrast this with our promise that all of the time you are in our office will be spent on aiding you and your spouse to resolve the issues surrounding your divorce. This is a much better use of your time and ours as it avoids the long unproductive waits in a courthouse.Difficult issues will be addressed, but in a positive, creative and problem solving manner. We will use our training and experience to help you stay focused, to keep the discussion moving forward and to create a solution that takes into consideration your unique needs and desires.
