When you work with us, our mission is to provide uncompromised representation and counsel in court, around the settlement table, and at home. I have been a family law attorney for nearly 20 years, and a Certified Family Law Specialist since 2008. I have witnessed the complete destruction inflicted by litigants and attorneys in family court. Divorce is a zero-sum game. Nobody wins. Even if you “win” one hearing or trial, the bitterness and fighting typically continues…until one or both sides run out of money. Think I am exaggerating? I encourage you to read this article which painstakingly chronicles what a true divorce looks like.
Many people enter a divorce with the false assumption that the courts will PUNISH the wrong-doer. Unfortunately, the family courts cannot award revenge. Judges are confined to the law. The cheater still receives support if he/she is the supported spouse with less income. The wrongdoer still has a right to one-half of all community property. It’s completely understandable to feel angry, frustrated, and helpless when you only end up with 50% of what you both previously had together. After all, you deserve 200%!
Unfortunately, there are lawyers out there who prey off your anger and fear, and promise you grandiose results that never materialize. Be careful.
When you work with us, we give you our promise to handle your case with purpose. Our goal is to get you past the ugliness of divorce and separation, so you can move on to building a new life.
