Divorce cases range from simple uncontested divorce cases with no assets and no children to contested divorce cases of long-term marriages with businesses, retirements assets, alimony issues, and children. While it is easy to lump divorce cases into different categories based on external facts, each case is different due to the unique personalities and needs of the people going through the divorce process. As an attorney and counselor at law, I designed my practice to interact closely with clients to gain an understanding of my clients’ needs to align the strategy and workflow of cases with clients’ goals and objectives.
By using technology to be efficient, and limiting my caseload, I am able to handle every aspect of the case from start to finish while remaining competitively priced in relationship to other firms. When you have a question or concern, I am there and easier to reach. Being able to speak with your lawyer, when you need help, greatly reduces stress.
Why Staying with a Small Law Firm is Better for both Contested Divorce and Uncontested Divorce
In my opinion, the practice of contested divorce law does not scale-up well. In other words, increasing the number of people within a law firm isn’t better for the client. When litigating contested divorce cases against larger family law firms, I have seen that cases are passed from person to person in the firm with each new person not possessing a comprehensive understanding of the case – all while costing their clients more (sometimes twice as much as I charge). This is important for all aspects of Family Law including alimony, child custody and child support issues. Think about it, would you rather have an experienced attorney working on all aspects of your case, or a paralegal or inexperienced attorney that has been handed the file right before trial or mediation?
