It chose me. When I first began, family law is what happened to walk in the door. The more I did the more I remained in that area because it takes full time to keep up with the changes.
You know the facts of your case, and I know the law and the process. It is the unusual situation where a person can learn family law in an unemotional way when it relates to their own case. What the law books say and what actually happens in court can be very different beasts.
Not a problem -- especially since clients know the facts of their lives.
No problem, but you get what you invest in the process. It will be better than nothing but not really enough help.
I spent two years in the Army in JAG defending Courts Martial. Prior to me being a solo practitioner, I spent four years as an employee of a law firm.
30 years in practice as well as constant continuing education especially as to the emotional and psychological impacts in dissolutions.
I am a bulldog. I grab a case and stick with it. I am very focused.
I remain unemotional about the case, which allows me to see how to help solve problems rather than just argue the issues.
I don't have any personal interests.
