Your family is the most important thing to you, and you would do anything to protect them. My practice is focused on families who want to get through hard situations and come out strong on the other side.
The Rutherford Law Center, LLC, focuses on doing what is right for the client, not what is convenient and easy for the attorney. I listen to you, and help guide you to a solution that is in your budget, but that addresses your needs and concerns. Don't go to a lawyer who is out to bill more hours instead of doing what is right for your family. At the Rutherford Law Center, you will find responsive and compassionate representation for your needs.
You may be ending a relationship, but that is no reason to destroy your family and those you love. Mediation is almost always the best solution for a family law matter. Let me help you reach resolution with as little emotional and monetary cost as possible. Collaborative law is also an option for those who wish to get a proactive, not distructive, divorce. I can also help you find the best resolution for your family if that reqires litigation as well.
You may need a will to protect your family. Let me talk through your options with you to make sure that they are protected. You may have suffered a loss, and need guidance with your loved ones' final wishes. I can guide you through the confusing paperwork and accounting to reach a final and legal completion.
Regardless of your situation, Meggin Rutherford will help you reach the best solution.

|Pro Se Mediation||We came to a full mediated agreement in three hours that they then filed with the court.|
|Collaborative Family Law||In the end, both parents have an ongoing relationship with their children, and their assets and debts were divided fairly. All without going to court.|
|Litigated Parenting Time Modification||We settled some of the outstanding issues in mediation, and went to court for the remaining issues. The court found that father was emotionally harming the child, and changed parenting time so the child was at less danger.|
