what i’ve learned

“Every family law case is different, presenting new facts and issues that create new challenges. Any legal action involving the family unit can be difficult, often identified as one of the hardest periods in a person’s life. During this time, the client needs to know they have a dedicated advocate to represent their interests. To be such an advocate, my focus is on gaining a full understanding of what my client hopes to get out of the current action as well as their goals for the future. Working closely with my client in developing a comprehensive strategy is the best way to reach practical, workable, and realistic legal solutions.”
