Specializing in Family Law
We’ve selected five Lawyers of the Year for portraits and to share trends in their legal specialties and a quotation that has inspired them in their work.
Notable trend: Clients are more interested now than ever before in mediation. Many clients are seeking agreed-upon resolutions, rather than resorting to litigation where a judge or jury will make important decisions about their future. This is especially true in family law matters, where clients prefer to decide the often complex financial terms of their divorce, and the future parenting arrangements for themselves and their children. Successful lawyers are problem-solvers and provide strategic advice to their clients on how to achieve the best results possible. In addition to being courtroom advocates, lawyers are helping to craft solutions which allow clients to move forward with their lives and avoid the uncertainty of protracted litigation.
