Including Clients In The Process
It is your life — you should be involved in the decision-making process.
Legal decisions regarding family and finances have the power to greatly alter our lives. That is why I take the time to educate my clients about their current legal circumstances.
I begin each client consultation by delving into the facts, learning all I can about my client's familial and financial circumstances, his or her family's dynamics and the dispute that is causing disagreement among family members. We also discuss my client's goals for resolution.
As a lawyer, I know that decisions made today have the power to impact lives for years to come. In that vein, I make sure my clients understand that choices today regarding child custody, visitation or bankruptcy will have lifelong effects on parent-child relationships and financial security.
Once I have thoroughly explained how the law applies to my client's specific situation, we review all dispute resolution methods available. Together, we select a route that not only best achieves today's goal, but sets my client on the path to achieving long-term success.
