Our Firm brings over 20 years of in-court experience to the practice of matrimonial and family law. While it is almost always preferable for a family to reach an out of court agreement resolving financial and custody issues, experience shows that most favorable settlements are reached when a party's legal team is thoroughly prepared to take the case all the way through trial.
In Collaborative Law (also known as Collaborative Practice), each spouse is represented by a specially-trained lawyer. Spouses sit together with their lawyers in face-to-face meetings to identify and address the issues they need to resolve to get divorced. Financial planning and mental health professionals may also be involved. If either spouse wants to litigate (go to court), the collaborative process ends. This motivates everyone involved to continue working toward a mutually agreeable resolution.
The Firm has resolved hundreds of personal injury cases, including automobile accident, premises liability (trip and fall), medical malpractice, construction accident, products liability and mass tort cases. Recent resolutions include $1.6 million settlement on behalf of client injured in construction accident.
