We understand that many people come to us in a time of crisis. Our philosophy is to help each client understand that although he or she may be facing a difficult situation now, this time will pass. While in the midst of a divorce or custody dispute it is often tempting to feel anger toward the other party, it is equally important to remember that anger is not the best approach to getting what you want. Family relationships do not disappear simply because a marriage has come to an end - especially when children are involved. For this reason, we work tirelessly to obtain the best results for our clients, focusing not just on finding short-term fixes, but on arriving at satisfying, long-term solutions.
