HOW WE WORK
We ensure that you are promptly provided with copies of all correspondence, both incoming and outgoing, and we steadfastly work to keep you apprised of the status of your case, including even the most minor of developments.
We aim to resolve every case without litigation, yet we realize an out-of-court resolution is not always possible. As formidable trial lawyers, we will litigate if faced with a bad faith offer. We will respect your wishes and aggressively yet compassionately work to advance your interests while maintaining high standards of legal, professional, and ethical integrity.
We will devote our attention to your case, without delay, prepare documents, filings, and discovery tailored to your matter. We will keep you apprised of court dates and important deadlines in connection with your case, and will be in contact regarding documents that you will need to read, authorize, and execute before we file them with the court.
Our focus is to keep the proceedings as amicable and as simple as possible. If you have children, your chosen approach will affect your future relationship as co-parents, and a practical parenting agreement is almost always preferable to a judge’s edict.
While it is difficult to predict total case costs, we view ourselves as creative problem solvers. Many factors affect the ultimate cost to a client in a family law case, including the complexity of contested issues, the size of the marital estate and the emotional content that invariably drives each party. We seek to have consistent and open communication with clients about financial matters throughout their case in an honest and mutually respectful fashion. Our priority is to minimize fees while achieving the best results.
As professional services are provided or costs are incurred on your behalf, funds will be drawn from the retainer account.
A detailed statement of services will be forwarded to you each month to keep you fully informed as to the status of your account.
When your case is resolved, any unused portion of the retainer will be returned to you. If the retainer is exhausted before your case concludes, you will need to replenish your account. The amount requested will be based on the current status of your case and an estimate of future services required.
Choosing the right family law firm can have an enormous impact on the outcome of your case. Our firm’s commitment to professionalism, civility, and open and honest communication allows us to provide our clients with the highest level of professional service at reasonable and transparent pricing.
