What is my attorney’s role in my divorce?

My role as your counsel is to provide you with competent legal advice and to assist you in navigating your litigation.  I follow a pragmatic approach to most things since emotions tend to cloud our judgment. My role is to lend some sanity to what can feel like an insane situation. I will not tell you what to do but will help you make wise choices in this process.  There are so many ways to accomplish any goal, and that includes family law matters.  We will explore various options and like trying on shoes – you need to find what fits best for your life.  If you are uneducated about your finances, I will try to educate you so that when we are done, you feel confident that you can take over as part of your own support system in your new life.
