The Law Office of Heather Cullen provides services that are fast, fair, and thorough. The firm seeks to reduce the financial and emotional toll of divorce, termination of domestic partnerships, legal separation and child custody proceedings through out-of-court settlements when possible. An out-of-court settlement is usually in the best interests of the client because it limits expenses and the stress connected with attending court. However, in some cases, court is necessary.

Out-of-Area and Out-of-State Clients
Additionally, the Law Office of Heather Cullen is experienced in representing clients who do not reside locally and cannot always appear personally to handle each issue of his/her family law matter. In those cases, the law firm enables out-of-area clients to maintain an effective case while remaining in their home area by using telephone, fax, email, and overnight mail to communicate and resolve issues. Further, it is common for an out-of-area client to appear by telephone in a family law hearing while an attorney from the firm appears in person to represent the party's interest. If this is an option that you are interested in, please discuss it with one of the attorneys at the Law Office of Heather Cullen during your consultation.
