Serving Southern West Virginia for over 20 years
With more than 30 years of experience, I can help explain the legal process and help you understand what is going on and what you can do to accomplish your goals. Information is power. I try to give you the information you need to deal with the situation better, even if you do not hire me to represent you in Court.
Helping people file court papers is important. It is also important to have a lawyer explain the process, give advice and look at all aspects of the case. Are children involved? What is marital property and how is it divided? Is there domestic violence? Is mediation or settlement possible? A lawyer helps his client to be legally and mentally prepared for any hearing or negotiation. I believe a lawyer should take the time to talk to you; to listen; and help you understand the law and how the Courts look at your own situation. When children are involved, every case is different, but family law is still about "family". Parents may get divorced but they do not divorce their children. Custody, child support and shared-parenting are often difficult to resolve. Talking to a lawyer about problems that arise after a final divorce can also be helpful.
