Initial Strategy Session
Quote for Representation
Launch the Strategy
Strategy is the Roadmap to Success
Everything starts with the initial strategy session.
This is not a sales meeting. It is an experienced family law attorney learning the facts about your situation, answering your questions, and detailing the strategy we recommend. Many men and women are surprised how little they understand about the process ahead and learn why our strategy sessions are informative and sometimes a game-changer.
You will end this session fully informed about the family law process, what you should reasonably expect and how to make smart choices along the way.
Honest Discussion About Attorney's Fees
There are two things you have to know about attorney's fees and costs. First, there is no way to predict your total fees and costs at an hourly rate. Second, the only people who "control" the dollar amount of family law attorney's fees and costs are you and the other party.
What we do is (a) give you a quote for the initial retainer deposit and hourly rates, (b) explain what you can do to keep your fees and costs to a reasonable amount, and (c) explain how to combat the other party's conduct that may increase your fees. You will be informed and make smart choices about the attorney's fees and costs ahead.
Quality Representation Begins Now
In a divorce, we help you complete your financial disclosures, ensure we receive complete disclosures from your spouse, and initiate the "discovery" process to get information, testimony and documents you do not have and need. We help you make reasonable settlement offers and get some or all of your case settled, or get it to a hearing and trial for the judge to make the decisions. Parentage cases for unmarried parents are similar, but simpler. Post judgment modification proceedings remain focused on the issues and move them toward a resolution or hearing.
This execution of the strategy is where you see what a positive difference diligent and quality representation can make for you.

Family Law is Our Only Area of Law
We represent husbands, wives, fathers and mothers who want smart and hard working representation for their divorce or parentage case.
But having a case and ability to afford our services is not enough. We interview you as much as you interview us. Your integrity, honesty and courage to do the right thing even in the face of adversity are critical to our representation.
We are also a full-service family law firm. We understand that some spouses want our experience to help them mediate their divorce. If you do not need individual representation from us but you and your spouse would rather hire our family law firm as a divorce mediation attorney, we also provide that service.
So, whether your need strong, individual representation for yourself or you and your spouse need a skilled divorce mediator, we can help.
Do Not Take Our Word for It - Read What Our Family Law Clients Say
- "Fantastic family law attorneys"
- "I will forever be grateful to them"
- "They were patient and compassionate"
- "I highly recommend this law firm"
- "I can't say enough about their professionalism"
- "I wish I had hired them first"
And unlike some other lawyers, actual clients we represented wrote the testimonials, not our friends, family, or those we paid to write fake reviews. Of course, testimonials are not a guarantee, warranty, prediction or assurance regarding the results you may obtain and every case is dependent on its own facts.
Your choice of advocate matters.
