“Client commitment, teamwork and technical expertise are the hallmarks of our firm.”
Clients who come to our office, each with their own distinct and diverse set of challenging issues, deserve and are given individualized personal attention. Attorneys and staff work together so that each client’s situation is given the full care and consideration needed for successful resolution. Respect is given to each client’s time and resources; judicious use of associates, staff and technology leads to measurable, cost-effective results.
The complexity of today’s family law issues often requires the use of experts drawn from a number of professional disciplines. These include forensic accountants, appraisers, mental health professionals, estate planners, pension administrators and actuaries. Professionals work with us to assess issues including asset valuation and property division (including professional practices, business interests and retirement plan benefits), tax planning and the emotional needs of the parties involved. With the assistance of these highly skilled professionals, we devise a result-oriented strategic plan for each client that provides practical and effective solutions to their financial and legal situations. In more than 45 years of practice, we have found our interdisciplinary team approach has led to a high level of success in even the most complex family law matters.
Negotiation and settlement are almost always preferable to trial. To that end, the firm takes a determined approach to resolve legal issues during mediation and settlement conferences. We are known for our ability to tenaciously negotiate on behalf of clients to achieve positive results. Solid legal research, responsiveness to client needs and our ability to effectively communicate with opposing counsel can often break through legal, financial and emotional roadblocks to settlement. However, when cases must be tried, clients can be confident of receiving strong representation in court. We have earned an outstanding reputation for skilled and effective advocacy, as well as a highly ethical and honorable standing among our peers and the courts.
