My client's come to me by word of mouth from other satisfied clients and other lawyers. I represent many lawyers in their divorce cases. I have devoted myself to the areas of Divorce Law, Matrimonial Law, Domestic Relations, and Family Law for my entire law career.
I represent men and women just as aggressively. I am a trained mediator, negotiator, and litigator. I have an old fashioned practice in that I am available to my clients 24/7. Everyone gets my cell phone number and they are always welcome to call my office or cell phone, or contact me by text and email. I am a lawyer who returns all calls promptly. You can ALWAYS contact me.
I know that client's are especially concerned with the costs of their case so i am extremely sensitive to their concerns and I work hard to keep their legal costs down. I have represented large cases worth millions and small cases. I work just as hard on both.
I make myself available during convenient hours for clients so that they do not have to miss work to come in to see me. I do not have my client's attend court unless it is absolutely necessary so they do not have to miss work needlessly.
I believe my job is to educate my client's about the law so that they can make their own informed decisions about their case and about their future.
I have the experience, expertise, and reputation in this field to do the best job possible for you and I will not let you down.

Ms. Raddatz is an extraordinary legal talent. She possesses encyclopedic knowledge of matrimonial law as well as superior analytical abilities. What I find especially relevant, however, is that Ms. Raddatz is an attorney who combines her legal talents with compassion for her clients and the community of individuals who submit questions in this forum. These are the qualities you ultimately need in any attorney whose services you retain--legal acumen combined with a commitment to treat you as a human being, not just another legal file or retainer check. In summary, you can rest assured that with Ms. Raddatz in your legal corner, you're in good hands.
