What are your firm's strengths and style?

Please spend a few minutes getting to know me.

As you are wandering through the Internet looking for a Family Lawyer you ask, "How can I tell one attorney from another?" This attorney has great credentials, but so does this one." It is not an easy decision to make. It is a decision that may affect the rest of your life and the lives of your children.

Being a Family Lawyer takes someone who cares about people, works hard and loves what he or she is doing. A Family Lawyer must have patience. A Family Lawyer must be a good listener. It is easy to put issues in 'small boxes,' label them, and move on to the next issue. With the volume of cases in the Court system, Judges use labels to simplify cases; it is human nature.

What if my issues do not fit into 'small boxes'? That is when you need to be represented by someone who can convince a Judge that your case and your life deserve a second look, a short pause before the Court slaps a label on it and moves it down the line for 'processing.'

You need to be represented by someone who understands the system and how the system can work for you and your family. Some of you have heard the stories about what goes on in divorce cases, custody cases, support cases, and the like. Some of these stories are true, but you do not have to accept all of these outcomes as inevitable.

I believe that I can make a difference in your case and your life. I will work hard to help you achieve your goals. My job is to point you in the right direction. Give you options when there are realistic alternatives. I will give you the tools to help you reorganize your life. This is a collaboration, a team effort. You will make the final decisions. No two cases are alike. People are individuals, not a compilation of dollars and cents. Sometimes a case needs a dose of common sense.

If you are looking for an attorney with a practical view of the Court system and litigation, please contact me. Litigation does not have to be expensive. You need to use your resources carefully. I will tell you honestly where it makes sense to stop, pause, and ask the Court for a second look.
