Me in a minute
I always tell prospective clients that lawyers are not one size fits all. You can be smart and skilled, and not be the right lawyer for a particular client or case. In family law, your lawyer will know more about your life than even the most trusted family members and friends. The lawyer you chose must be someone that you can trust to have the hard conversations with you in a frank and reasonable manner.
Many lawyers will tell you what you want to hear; I will tell you what you need to know whether the information is positive or poses a challenge in your case. At our best, family law lawyers are strategic thinkers and solution oriented. I use my experience to achieve settlement when feasible, and when it is not, I utilize the court process to achieve your goals.
