First and foremost, we are recognized legal experts in the broad application of family law, but we are also extremely passionate advocates for legal innovation.
We believe that clients should have choices: options that enhance their overall results and the experience to get them there. Lawyers are trained to resolve legal issues with an effective, but somewhat homogeneous approach to client relationships.
Through our years of experience, however, we have learned that clients want more choice in terms of how their legal issues are addressed. It’s this increasing gap between our clients’ problem and their desired solution that inspired us to create a new kind of law firm: one where we work with you to create a tailored approach to your unique family law needs, and one that connects you with a broad variety of supports and resources to improve your experience during the change in your family. See more about our approach.
Not all family law problems require the same solution. Some clients face complicated legal questions; others are dealing with more clear-cut or discrete family law issues. Some separating spouses can work together cooperatively; others can’t.
Because our clients’ circumstances and needs vary, so do our services. Our legal team includes family law lawyers (one of whom also assists with estate planning, such as drafting wills and powers of attorney) and a paralegal. Depending on your situation and goals, we may recommend that you work with one or more team members to resolve your legal issues. In some cases, we also offer alternatives to the hourly rate billing arrangement. When we first meet with you, we will discuss all your options and help you decide what works best for you and your family.
Our innovative approach to the practice of family law is also reflected in the fact that we offer our clients more than just legal advice. Because many spouses going through separation or divorce have needs that extend beyond what our lawyers offer, we have developed an extensive professional network of business valuators, financial planners, tax specialists, divorce coaches, child specialists and parenting coordinators. With your input, we bring together a team who will provide you the financial and emotional support you need during this time of transition, allowing us to focus on your legal issues.
The community of support we offer extends beyond the professional to the personal. We invite our clients to attend our bi-monthly in-house “Divorce Salons”, which cover topics relating to separation and divorce. The Salons are limited to 15 people, and offer a chance to learn from the experts and connect with others going through similar experiences. To learn more about our upcoming Divorce Salons click here.
