Without a doubt, there is nothing I care about more than my family. I am adopted, as are my siblings, and so I feel that I have a unique perspective and appreciation for being a part of a supportive, loving family. While my parents have been married for over thirty years and have four children who remain extremely close, we have experienced our ups and downs. Through it all, we have remained a strong family unit, and this is what has gotten us through those difficult times.
Practicing Family Law, you deal with people who are usually at the lowest point of their lives. If you are meeting with a Family Law attorney, then your family, whatever that may look like, is in crisis. There is nothing more personal and emotional than this. It is important as a Family Law attorney to be a stable, compassionate advisor and advocate during this very difficult time. Fulfilling that role is what practicing Family Law is all about for me.
The needs of a Family Law client vary from person to person. It is imperative to be able to fit the role that a particular client needs in a given situation. While one client may need a shoulder to cry on, another may need a strong voice to speak for them, and another may need a calming presence to see them through the situation. However, I truly feel that all clients need guidance to work towards a resolution that allows them to move on to the next stage of their life, whatever that may be.
