Family Law Consultation

A successful outcome to a family law dispute often depends on the amount of information obtained by the parties before the legal process begins. With highly skilled litigators and over five decades of combined experience handling complex and high-conflict cases, the firm provides clients with the focus, direction and strategy they need to wisely move ahead through the process and avoid litigation pitfalls. Key benefits of such consultation include:

» The advice is an excellent “reality check,” as the attorney’s role in this process is not to undertake representation, but to inform clients how and when to proceed. No amount of general reading material can substitute for the information gathered and confidence garnered by a one-on-one consultation with one of the firm’s attorneys.

» The attorney will advise where, when, or even whether to file for dissolution, how and whether to proceed on a certain course of action (e.g., litigation, or mediation), and what consequences to expect from various actions that may be taken.

» All matters discussed during consultation are strictly confidential, and the attorney-client privilege attaches the moment the process begins.

Family Law Case Evaluation

Both family law attorneys and their clients are often concerned about the progress of an existing family law case, and that’s where a “second opinion” can make a profound difference.

The firm can provide this “second opinion” or a “reality check” in a thorough and unbiased manner. The perspective and guidance its attorneys offer can be the difference between a matter that moves forward, and one that gets bogged down and becomes stressful, expensive, and time-consuming.

The firm’s attorneys have had many years of experience providing other attorneys with insight and helpful solutions to problems they face when representing their clients. They also have extensive experience consulting with clients who are uncomfortable with, or who seek a “second opinion” about, the advice provided to them by their own attorneys. A “second opinion” from one of the firm’s attorneys will provide an unbiased evaluation of the case, whether to another attorney, or to the client of another attorney.
