In Family Law the goals are defined by the client. The first task is to identify realistic and obtainable goals given the facts and the application of the law. Once goals are identified methods must be addressed and strategies established to verify information, facts and evidence (discovery and investigation) and to determine whether to settle or litigate, keeping in mind the most practical and cost effective way to reach the stated goals.
Our family law cases vary from the simple dissolution by joint agreement to the complex matters litigated by presentation of expert witnesses. Our primary concern is the proper preparation, goal identification, and strategy. When at all possible, we attempt amicable divorce by mutual agreement such as a Marital Settlement Agreement, however, when the client’s goals cannot be achieved this way, we are fully prepared to litigate.
