your attorney, our job is to explain the relevant law, and procedures for your particular matter
in addition to discussing the various options available to you. We will listen to your goals and work with you to devise an
individual strategy for achieving those goals within the parameters of the law and confines of the legal system. You will
not like everything we have to say, and you may not agree with the law; however we can only work within the system as it presently
exists. We provide our opinions about a particular course of action and can advise you as to the likelihood of success for
a particular issue, but ultimately you will need to make the final decision after having received our counsel.
Knowledge Erases Fear
We know that you may be
feeling a tremendous amount of emotion and that you may be scared and confused and we will do our best to alleviate your fear
and confusion by answering your questions honestly and in a straightforward manner. We expect you to ask us questions, otherwise
we may assume that you understand everything we have related to you.
There are a lot of strange terms used in the law which we do not expect you
to be familiar with, so we always try to explain things in plain English and make sure that you are comfortable with our explanation.
Please do not ever hesitate to ask us a question, or to seek clarification about something with which you do not understandIt
is our goal to have you fully advised of what is taking place in your case and what to expect in any court proceeding, so
that you never feel unprepared heading into any conference, hearing, conciliation, etc.
We know that emotions naturally
find their way into family law matters, but we try to separate the emotion from the case so that we can proceed in the most
cost-effective and productive course of action. While we understand and empathize with the various emotions you may be feeling
depending on your individual circumstances (fear, anger, confusion, sadness, frustration, guilt etc.) and we may help to alleviate
some of the stress that you may encounter during your family law matter and we often advise that you seek additional
emotional assistance from family, friends, clergy or trained professionals. Not only will this keep your legal costs down,
but it will allow you to focus on the legal aspects of you matter when you are in contact with us.
Much Will it Cost?
We do our best to advise you as to the potential costs for
your matter, but there are a number of factors which may increase your costs including the level of cooperation exhibited
by the opposing party and/or their counsel. We try to only initiate litigation which we feel is necessary and will steer clear
from addressing matters which we do not believe will further your interests. Our rates are competitive and we are honest
with our billing. For your convenience we offer both hourly and flat fee pricing depending on the matter to make your representation
most cost effective.
