While the needs of each family may be unique, we approach each case with a few simple principles:
- Take a straightforward and practical approach for real results
- Provide candid advice for our clients.
- Continually assess and reassess our position based on the available evidence and legal trends
- Treat the parties involved with dignity and respect, even if we don't always agree.
Putting The Children First, Always
We help parents help their children by focussing on the best interests of the child.
Most of the time what's best for any child is stability and a connection to both parents. This can be difficult for both custodial and noncustodial parents, who often find it a challenge to communicate with the other parent and fear loss of connection to their children.
With a background in representing both children and parents through the Office of the Children's Lawyer, we can help parents learn to cooperate enough to benefit their children and create solutions that fit their needs.
Finances: Support, Property Division, Business Interests And Limited Retainers
Whether we are helping you consider your property, dealing with business-related concerns or calculating support payments, we understand that your financial concerns are important.
Many of our clients and their spouses are business owners. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling complex assets. If necessary, we can call on other trusted professionals such as business valuators to assist us.
We are also mindful of the fact that the cost of legal services can be a source of stress. For clients looking to cut costs, we offer limited scope retainers: we will handle the parts of your divorce where you feel you need help, and you can handle the rest.
The Method Matters
Often in family law, the method used to settle disputes is as important as the decisions themselves.
We are comfortable, experienced and skilled in the courtroom. We are tough litigators who will defend your rights with skill and perseverance.
However, particularly when you have children, alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, arbitration and collaborative family law can be cheaper, faster, and less divisive in the long term.
