The Biggest Problem with

Domestic Abuse


I don’t know where to start

Your world feels like it’s in a tailspin – navigating bureaucracy is the last thing you need.

Dealing with a parking ticket is enough of a nightmare – divorce can sometimes feel impossible to manage. Lawyers don’t have a great reputation for making things clear. They get their prestige and paychecks by keeping the process secret and charging you to fix things.


You can get all the information here – the forms to file, videos and articles about the issues, the statutes in question – everything.


But the process is still scary, and there are pitfalls that you can easily miss if this isn’t something you deal with every day like we do.


The last thing you need is to be worrying about what to file and where, dealing with court dates and judges, and playing detective when obstacles arise.


You have a life and a family to deal with, and we’re here to make sure that those remain your top priorities, not chasing paperwork and deadlines.


Your first step is to meet with a family law attorney to learn what’s at stake, learn how to protect yourself, and learn how to move forward to a place of safety.

I’m worried it’ll get ugly

You’re not happy about having a lawyer messing in your life. Hey, we’re lawyers and we don’t always like us.


But, waiting to call until it gets “really ugly” is a mistake.


You need answers before you enter this process. The last thing you need is to make decisions about your future, your children, and your finances without knowing what you’re doing.


You can get the answers you need without handing over control of your life to someone you don’t yet trust.


Above all else, we’re here to protect you and your family. We’re not out to earn reputations as bulldogs by picking unnecessary fights. Nobody “wins” in divorce, and we’re here to make sure that you’re safe and able to move on with your life.

Will lawyers make it worse?

It can certainly feel that way sometimes.


One lawyer takes action, the other responds, the husband and wife get sucked into the conflict and away we go.


That’s why we offer alternatives to the traditional process. We can help you with collaborative divorce, mediation and arbitration. We can also help you deal directly with your spouse and get things settled with minimal involvement by us.


We’ve found ways to avoid the old rules and systems so you can do it your way. We’ve all heard stories of courtroom horrors: the “my way or the highway” approach imposed on clients, $20,000 attorney fees, years of litigation and families end up feeling like their case got resolved in a backroom deal without their input or consent.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Our motto is “Divorce is different here” because we truly do it differently.

* We hand control back to you.

* We do everything in our power to achieve a result that meets your expectations in the way you want it done.

* We help you control the costs, manage the conflict and stay in control.


You’ve got an idea about how your new life is going to look and we’re here to help you achieve your objectives.


Divorce truly is different here. If you’re ready to get started then we’re ready to help. Call us at 312-987-9999
