Divorce and separation Attorney at Greenfield, WI
Licensed for 31 years
When you hire an attorney you should find out first if they are competent (do they know the law; are they experienced; do they have a good reputation) and second you should ask yourself, could I work with this person over a long period of time.
There are many philosophies on practicing law. Some attorneys want to take the lead and the client follows; some attorneys want only to settle the case and will do almost anything to see that happen; some attorneys want the client to take the lead and they will advocate for anything the client wants. I do not personally agree with any of those philosophies.
I try to measure up a client when they come through my door. The client will know something about me by the eclectic art on the walls of my office and how I dress. I want to understand the clients "story." I will then use the law and my skill to make the story come alive to the Court. The Court wants to do the right thing: it is a Court of equity; but first the Court must understand.
I believe in respect. I am respectful and I want my clients to be respectful. The Court is not an arena for revenge and I have no desire to shepherd that emotion.
My clients are presidents of companies and janitors; each one's story is different and interesting. These are people whom I respect and who are not so different from one another.
I like my clients. I like the work. I like to win my cases -- I am not an attorney for everyone.
