Three Reasons Why You Should Hire Our Firm For Your Divorce or Custody Matter
- Lawyer accessibility
- Unique approach to pricing and case preparation
- Substantial experience and winning trial results
Accessibility: Most law firms have layers of personnel between the attorney and the clients.Clients who have switched to our firm from another have told us that attorney inaccessibility was their major problem (with expense and lack of performance being numbers two and three). At our firm when clients have substantive questions, they speak directly with the attorney responsible.
Unique Approach To Your Case:
In contested divorce and custody cases, we prepare every matter as if it will be presented to a judge. We have a reputation for aggressive litigation. Since most cases settle, average lawyers never think about trial until it is almost upon them. We start every case by looking at the law and facts that will govern the issues of the trial. Everything we do is geared toward obtaining the best result for our client. By preparing for trial, we help ensure the best possible settlements in those matters that are resolved outside of a court hearing.
In uncontested divorces and premarital agreements our experience allows us to perform the tasks for a flat rate quoted up front. When a person knows the cost up front and knows how long it will take to accomplish the task it simplifies their decision making and planning. In litigation we can often avoid the hourly fee approach by charging per legal task. This way you know your costs up front.
What if you have no money for attorney’s fees for a long fight? Where appropriate we can obtain an order from the court that allows our fees to be paid by the opposing party. This is possible in divorce and custody matters and often occurs when one spouse is a homemaker and the other spouse is the one who earns the family income.
Winning Trial Experience:
My last family trial in which all the issues were in controversy: property division, retirement plan interests, support, and what to do with the family home took place on June 1, 2012. Many divorce lawyers have never tried a case! You need experienced representation to obtain the best results whether by settlement or trial.We always put our client’s interests first. We usually invite an open exchange of information with the opposing side followed by hard negotiation aiming for a fair result. But if the opposing counsel or spouse attempts to gain an unfair advantage we will litigate the disputed matters to ensure our client’s interests are served and that may require a trial on one or more issues of the divorce.
I have the highest rating for legal skill and ethical conduct from the two most popular attorney rating sites–avvo.com and martindale.com. See the ratings from avvohere and from martindalehere. Only 5 percent of U.S. attorneys have Martindale’s highest rating.
I am a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Established in 1993, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum (which includes the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum) is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. There are over 4000 members throughout the country. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.
At trial, we present an understandable, plausible theme of the case. We use experts on child custody issues and property valuation where necessary. We ensure that the judge understands the facts and relevant law that reinforce our client’s theme. We show the judge why our theory on the disputed issue is right, and why he or she should rule for our client. Sounds simple, but it takes years of experience to perfect.
