Choosing a divorce lawyer is a decision I didn't want to make but had to. It was a decision i didn't take lightly because counsel represents me and i wanted my lawyer's conduct, argument, presentation, and strategy to reflect how I would try the case. After interviewing and consulting a handful of lawyers, the decision to have Mr. Gouras represent me was an easy one to make. Now that the trial is over and divorce final, I can fully endorse Mr. Gouras for helping me realize all 3 of my legal goals, the primary one being awarded 50/50 custody of my child.
A part of the outcome was a function of the facts which Mr. Gouras honestly and candidly assessed during our initial consultation. The next element was his directions to me through the various stages of the divorce process. At times I had certain ideas about what we should do and Mr. Gouras patiently educated me based on his years of experience. Most importantly was how Mr. Gouras used the facts, my conduct during the temporary orders, responding to the other party, and his experience to craft and present compelling arguments before the court.
Mr. Gouras made me feel thoroughly prepared and in control during the 18 month custody battle. Of course we could only control our side of the street but our side was clean. A divorce, like a marriage,ends when one party is done. My case required a judge to tell the other party that it is over. Hopefully your case won't end in trial but be assured that if Mr. Gouras is representing you that he will treat each stage with effective and efficient precision.
I have a lot of tattoos and there is a saying that "Good tattoos aren't cheap and cheap tattoos aren't good". There are lots of parallels between working with an expert custom tattoo artist and an expert divorce attorney but the most obvious one is that the end result is something you will live with for a lifetime. I have no regrets on my choice of tattoo artists or my choice in Mr. Gouras as my lawyer. The divorce (like a tattoo) was painful but I had complete confidence in my professional who turned a scar into a piece of art. Thanks to Mr. Gouras and Ms. Solomon.
