Excellent legal services in child custody, support, visitation, and divorce for Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.At Shupert Chaing, our mission is to provide you with excellent legal services in the area of family law with honesty, communication and passion. Our attorneys are committed, experienced lawyers who take their responsibilities seriously, knowing that the results they achieve for their clients will have a lasting impact on their lives. As your attorney, the first goal is to help you assess what your legal needs are, then to assist you in meeting those needs. Together, we can create a plan of action that will give you confidence as we work towards your goals.
Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?
Yes! We offer assistance in trial preparation, discovery, and more. Because the need for legal representation doesn't always fit the budget of some of our clients, we offer a Trial Prep Package. Our Trial Prep includes one-on-one time with the attorney for pertinent legal advice and assistance with document drafting.
What are your firm's strengths and style?
Many attorneys try to sell you their services by promising that they can get you everything you want, no matter what. When you meet with me, my first goal is to obtain the facts necessary to evaluate your case and then provide you with an honest look at what your outcome might be, and whether you even need an attorney.
No one wants to be kept in the dark about what is going on in their case. I believe that my clients deserve clear communication on all aspects of their representation, especially when it comes to the fees involved and the progression of their case.
What distinguishes your law firm from others?
Many firms 'hide the ball' when it comes to preparing you for the financial requirements of legal representation. You expect one thing, then your bill says something completely different. I am committed to making sure all my clients clearly understand the financial terms of my representation. I am also committed to making my services as affordable as possible. In many cases, a payment plan can be established to work with your budget.
As your case progresses, you are entitled to be informed about what is going on with your case, including documentary requirements, deadlines and court dates. Some attorneys do not provide copies of any documentation unless requested by the client. It is my policy to provide my clients with copies of all material documentation, throughout the representation. Other attorneys fail to return telephone calls or emails in a timely manner, if at all. My policy is that all telephone calls and emails should be returned within 24-48 hours. Of course, emergencies must be addressed immediately. I have intentionally set up an email, fax and voicemail system that is instantly accessible to me at all times.
