In my 40 plus years of professional practice, I would say that the area of family law requires an attorney with a strong intellect, one who is a good strategist, having both a good legal and mathematical mind.
Our Prestigious Team
We know that parental attitudes directly affect children in a divorcing family. Children going through the separation and divorce of their parents very often, if not universally, feel some shock to their equilibrium and their stability.
Family law is the most diverse and challenging area of the law. I strive to best serve our clients by working hard to address each client’s particular needs and to build trust by providing sensible and expert advice in order to successfully guide the client through contentious and often highly-charged financial and custody issues.
Emotions are inextricably intertwined with almost everything we do. In order to be ahead of the curve and anticipate an opponent’s legal maneuvering, we are obliged to consider what they are trying to accomplish, why they want to accomplish it and how they would attempt to accomplish it.
I believe in smart advocacy, which means always having a strategy and overall objective in place to get clients successfully through a difficult period of transition. No two cases are alike.
Figure out the issues and the facts early, see how your opponent measures them, and determine whether he has the ability to engage in a realistic settlement dialog. If not, work up the case and hammer along until reason sets in. If it doesn’t, litigate.
I am drawn to the practice of family law due to the personal nature of the work, and find working side by side with my clients to resolve their dissolution and parentage issues (whether through litigation or mediation) to be highly rewarding.
Family law is a microcosm of life itself. Divorce is the breaking apart of the family, which is the fundamental structure of our society. We, as family law lawyers, must be able to help our clients through the legal process as they restructure their finances, their living arrangements and their relationships.
Families are the backbone of our society. As such, it is my duty as an attorney to represent my clients with the utmost diligence and rigor in order to ensure that they receive the fervent representation that they deserve.
As a family law attorney, I find I wear many more hats than I did in my first two decades of practice as a business trial attorney. My goal is always to get my client’s issues resolved as efficiently as possible so they can start the next chapter of their lives.
