Resolving Issues Between The Parties
In family law & divorce matters each of the parties are generally responsible for their own expenses–including attorney’s fees. When disputes arise during a divorce or following a divorce without resolution the more court time and more attorney’s fees the matter becomes. When the parties can agree or find quick resolutions the cheaper the matter is. We also find that the more the parties can agree the higher the satisfaction of the parties. We always seek to find common ground or quick resolutions first to keep our fees as low as possible. When the parties can’t agree, however, rest assured that we will aggressively defend your interest.
