Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
There is probably no other area of law that provides as much opportunity for helping others as family law. We often see a family divided by serious conflict, and then use that situation to reduce conflict and bring reconciliation. We have had the opportunity over the past couple of years to help several families heal their marriages. Forgiveness, grace and fresh starts bring the most satisfaction to our work.

How did you build a successful practice?
We have built a successful practice through our efforts to help others resolve conflict at the least possible cost.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Knowledge, skill and experience in the area of law.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Having an excellent reputation among other attorneys and judges are two elements that help us be successful.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We have a paralegal provide information about our services and fees. Our consultations are reasonably priced.
