As your attorneys, it is our duty to inform you of your rights and obligations and to assist you in arriving at an equitable resolution of your domestic matter. If you would like to obtain an out-of-court settlement of your case, we will assist you in settlement negotiations, advise you of all settlement offers, advise you as to whether such offers are equitable and whether they are in accordance with what the Court would order.
We will take the time to make sure you have a full understanding of all the issues in your case, so you can make informed decisions about how to proceed. If a settlement cannot be reached, or if you do not want to attempt to reach a settlement, we will be prepared to try your case. We will work with you through every step of the process to help you obtain the best result that the circumstances allow.
