Contemplating separating from your spouse or been served with divorce papers already? Are you experiencing mounting debt? Has a loved one passed away? I started my practice with the premise I would always attempt to get positive results for my clients in a way this minimizes the stressful elements of the legal process
No one likes to spend time in court. People do not always realize the time that goes into the process. Even a short hearing lasting three hours can require weeks or even months of preparation: weeks and months that are full of uncertainty and nervous anticipation.
Clients hire lawyers because they want professionals to help them make informed decisions and formulate practical ways to reach their goals. Clients do not always realize that getting a good result from a Judge does not necessarily mean that the lawsuit is over. If a spouse is angry or feels they got the short end of the stick, litigants easily find themselves back in court only after a few months. In tit-for-tat situations, it isn't surprising for litigants to lose whatever gains they may have made previously.
By pursuing a win-win approach to litigation and negotiation, we want our clients to move on and start new lives and obtain closure - not to obtain pyrrhic victories.
Rather than only protecting a client's rights, we try to simultaneously find solutions that are comprehensive and are more likely to end the conflict.
