I’ve met all kinds in my nearly three decades of meeting people heading to court – the rogues and the fighters, the brave and the timid, the truth-tellers and the truth-benders. All have one thing in common:
Things change. People grow. You can adjust or spend your time fighting.
There are reasons people should not be together. But I believe everyone deserves an opportunity to live a better life. All kids need to be happy, safe, and allowed to develop as their own person.
I strive to help the people who come to me, who trust me to guide them through some of their toughest moments. I thought helping them through the court process and trying to prepare them for their fight was the best way to do that.
Going into a courtroom for any reason means my clients are letting a judicial officer make decisions for them. Litigation happens to them. They live with someone else’s choices.
I think mediation is the better choice.
