After more than a decade of practicing as a family law attorney, I know that when our clients contact us, they are typically making one of the biggest decisions of their lives. They each have somehow empowered themselves enough to make the journey to change what he or she has known…whether it was for one year or twenty years. I understand it is not always hard for everyone, but change affects us all. I see it with my clients. I saw it with my own parents. In hindsight, I have to believe that the events of my childhood led me on this path. I often joke with my family that my experience as a child of parents with “irreconcilable differences” predestined my career. As a family law attorney, I feel the advantage of understanding the experience of separation and divorce through the eyes of an adult and as a young girl. That experience was fraught with anxiety, especially at the beginning. I believe it’s our job, as family law attorneys, to educate our clients on their various legal options so as to reduce that anxiety and allow them to feel more in control of their cases. At our firm, each attorney and staff member believes not only in their ability to make a difference in a client’s life but also their ability to be supportive of a client’s emotional, spiritual and physical well being.
