“I chose the field of matrimonial and family law so I could make a direct and positive impact on people’s lives. I wanted to be able to help people and provide a service that would assist and guide them during a very difficult time.
Although the practice of matrimonial law can be very intense, it can also be very satisfying and rewarding. When a client comes in for an initial consultation, they are usually at an emotional low point in their lives. Clients need to know that they have an attorney who will not only take the time to listen to their problems but who will also understand their needs. This can only be accomplished through proper preparation and a willingness to sweat the details. I can never guarantee a client any result but what I will promise is that they will be properly prepared.
I believe that the wisest choice is for a couple to amicably resolve their matrimonial difficulties. However, in the event that one side is unreasonable and does not negotiate in ‘good faith,’ you need an attorney who is also going to adequately prepare you for court.”
