Strong Advocacy and Sensitivity
Arguments leading up to a divorce spill over into disputes about custody, financial support and dividing marital assets. Even couples intent on an amicable dissolution often find they cannot come to agreement on certain issues relating to the children’s welfare and where they will live, or what to do with the marital home. Therefore, it is important to hire an experienced divorce and family law lawyer who can identify the core issues in a divorce and strategize around those points. Your attorney should be skilled at drawing these matters to a fair and swift resolution, but experienced in the courtroom if settlement talks or mediation breaks down.
