Yes, they are, and we do have clients who come to see us for just a support or custody issue.
We have four attorneys, and they work on most of the cases together but on the different aspects of the case. We always tell clients if there is a particular aspect of their case where they have an opportunity to save on legal fees by putting documentation together themselves, attending support/custody conferences without counsel if possible, etc. We also delegate work to the paralegals whenever possible, as that saves the client the higher attorney's fees.
The type of law our firm practices generally does not result in the use of mediation, arbitration or collaborative law. However, some of our clients use our counsel in preparing for mediation of their divorces cases, and in most counties in which we practice, a form of mediation is the first step in custody and support disputes.
Yes, we do. We offer free legal services to veterans and first responders. We are very active in our community. Kevin Zlock recently established The Kevin Zlock Veterans Family Endowment of $100,000 to assist veterans and their families in their pursuit of educational opportunities at the Bucks County Community College.
Our attorneys are very thorough and very prepared when they speak to clients and when they go to Court. We do care very much for our clients and that is why many of them have become our friends.
We believe that clients can benefit to a certain extent by educating themselves on legal issues. A client's knowledge of legal issues can facilitate more in-depth and productive discussions with his/her counsel, and some clients feel better knowing that they have done research on their own, if only for purposes of learning as much as possible regarding their particular case. However, clients must be careful when selecting the resources for their education, as online resources in particular may not be accurate or may not give explanations that are detailed or comprehensive enough to accurately portray the state of the law on any given subject. Additionally, one cannot be careful enough when it comes to handling complex family law issues in Court, and certain matters should be handled only by professional attorneys.
Of course we are willing to review documents prepared by clients and offer our insight and propose suggestions for revisions. However, the review process may bring out sufficient issues that redrafting the documents is necessary and preferable to editing the documents to an extensive degree. For instance, the clients may be using outdated forms, or the forms they selected do not apply to their particular situation. We certainly do not want to upset clients, because they spent a lot of time preparing the forms, but the reality is that all cases are different and an analysis of any particular situation must come first, before the forms can be prepared.
Our attorneys have coached clients who want to deal with the opposing party or opposing counsel directly. In most cases, the attorneys eventually assumed representation of those clients, simply because self-representation became too complex, burdensome and/or ineffective.
Our firm was founded in 1996 by Kevin Zlock. Kevin has been practicing law for over 21 years in Bucks County, PA. The practice is dedicated almost exclusively to family and divorce law, but we do manage some criminal cases. Kevin very much enjoys what he does, and he truly believes that he has the best job in the world. Our clients find themselves at a very difficult place in their lives, and we have made it our goal to help them find solutions to the various issues they encounter when going through the divorce process. To accommodate our clients, we have extended business hours, and we offer weekend and evening appointments. Over the course of the years, many of our clients became our friends, because we were able to manage difficult situations together. We consider that one of the biggest accomplishments for us as a professional law firm.
