Why Choose Us?
What Makes us Different Makes us Exceptional
It’s the difference between being just another Family Law firm and being A Family that Serves Families.
It means Conscientiously Reinventing what it takes to help you transform your life, create your future, and honor and protect the most important relationships in your life.
It means an Unwavering Commitment to unrivaled legal expertise, unmatched client service and unconditional compassion for you as a human being.
How do we do it?
We only hire people who love people.
Everyone who joins our family – whether as an Attorney, Paralegal, Manager, Administrative Support Staff, Clerk, or Intern – brings a proven commitment to supporting and empowering people and families. Whether through community and public service, professional experience and leadership, or artistic and creative expression, every member of our family is a person who loves people. That makes all the difference, not only to our experience working together for you, but to your experience engaging with us. It means that every interaction you have with a member of our family is with a person who cares deeply about you.
We work as a family for you and your family.
When you and your family invest in ours, you receive not only the most empowering support possible but also the most cost-effective. We will staff your matter with a collaborative, flexible, professional team to ensure every service is performed skillfully on your behalf by the Attorney, Paralegal, or Staff Member who can deliver it most efficiently.
We commit fully to you as your partners on your journey.
Every person we commit to as a client is a fellow human being who is facing momentous choices and changes in the most important relationships in their lives. Some are beginning, transforming, or ending relationships with their partners or spouses through prenuptial or cohabitation agreements, or through separation or divorce. Others are restructuring their relationships with their children through co-parenting plans, custody agreements, or adoption. Many are even changing how they identify themselves, including their names or genders.
Whatever choices and changes you are facing, we commit fully as your partners on your journey.
To us, full commitment means nothing short of understanding and supporting every client holistically, as a whole person. It is why we have expanded our services to embrace the full range of expert Peacemaking services, including Mediation and Collaborative Practice, empowering people to create peaceful, efficient, enduring agreements without litigation or other adversarial proceedings. It is also why we are pioneering a groundbreaking effort to connect our clients with integrated Health and Wellness services, supports and education to help them find healthy, positive, life-affirming pathways through their conflicts, choices, and changes.
