Working Toward Your Goals During Negotiation and in the Courtroom
An important strength of our legal practice is our experience in the courtroom. Our ability to effectively present your position on any disputed issue in court not only gives you an advantage in divorce litigation, but also improves your bargaining leverage in negotiations. Having a credible litigation alternative can help you get the most out of a property division agreement or a negotiated visitation schedule.
A negotiated settlement based on a sound legal strategy is usually the quickest, most certain, and least expensive way to resolve a family law problem. Most issues can be worked out by agreement. We add value for our clients by improving the likelihood that your agreements will fully support your goals for yourself and your family.
