Family Law

The First Step in Resolving a Family Law Issue

Your first step in any family law matter is choosing the right attorney. Our family law attorneys in Nashville understand that family law matters often involve powerful human emotions and therefore present some of the most important, personal, and complex legal issues people can face. You can trust our highly skilled and experienced leaders in divorce and family law to help you navigate the sensitive challenges ahead. We are proud of our reputation for excellence within the Nashville community. Protecting our clients and achieving their goals is our primary concern and what motivates us every day to fight for their best interests and vigorously advocate on their behalf.

The domestic law attorneys at Cole Law Group have a comprehensive understanding and experience in all aspects of family law including mediation, pre-trial litigation, trial litigation, and appeals. We represent individuals, mothers, fathers, children, husbands, wives, and partners in all walks of life with regard to the following issues:

  • Divorce, separation, annulment
  • Restraining and protective orders
  • Child custody
  • Multi-states disputes regarding children
  • International disputes regarding children
  • Child Abduction
  • Parent relocation
  • Paternity and legitimation
  • Surrogacy
  • Adoption
  • Name changes
  • Actions to terminate parental rights
  • Post-modifications
  • Contempt actions
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Reconciliation Agreements

We understand that these matters can determine your right to continue to live in your own home, control the upbringing of your children, preserve your property, and protect the integrity of your reputation and career. The cases we handle are very serious matters and are dealt with as such.

Trust in the Family Law Attorney-Client Relationship

Our firm understands the importance of trust in the attorney-client relationship. As our family law client, you will be treated with the utmost professionalism, integrity, and discretion. We offer sound counsel to our clients with regard to their options, take pride in our standards, and make every effort to minimize the mental anguish and financial drain that can occur with prolonged representation. Our Nashville family law attorneys understand that the challenges our clients face are often the toughest they will ever encounter in their lives, and our attorneys are committed to helping our clients navigate through their legal issues with clarity and compassion to reach a satisfactory resolution – whether inside or outside of the courtroom.

At your very first consultation, you will see that we are good listeners and understand that your case is different from all others, with its own set of difficulties and objectives. As no two cases are alike, we do not provide cookie cutter advice or boilerplate representation. Our family law and divorce attorneys are strategic thinkers who offer creative, custom-tailored solutions designed to minimize your stress and achieve your objectives efficiently. You will be treated with dignity, respect, and discretion as we discuss potential options in your case. Changing attorneys in family law matters can be expensive and give the appearance of weakness in litigation, and that is why choosing the right attorney to partner with you in your case is critically important.

Partnering With Your Family Law Attorney

We believe that knowledge is power, and that it is our job to partner with you, communicate with you on a timely basis, and include you as an integral part of the decision-making process. Our team-oriented approach will afford you the advantage of receiving legal advice from various practice area perspectives and ensure that you will receive knowledgeable guidance and prompt attention to any questions or concerns that may arise. Unlike many family law firms, the attorneys at Cole Law Group possess important legal knowledge across a wide-ranging set of practice areas in addition to family law, including business law, defamation and privacy, immigration, criminal law, technology, and appeals. We understand that many family law matters intersect with legal issues in other areas of the law. In such cases, including high-asset divorces or high-conflict family disputes, it is important to choose a family law attorney that can protect your interests in a legally comprehensive manner and not just in the context of family litigation. The family law clients of Cole Law Group benefit from the inclusive legal approach our attorneys utilize in developing strategies with our clients. If your legal issue requires the help of an expert outside the legal field, such as an accountant, psychologist, or parenting plan coordinator, we can help with referrals to experienced and caring professionals. Together, we will develop a strategy that will maximize your opportunity to achieve your goals while minimizing your exposure to the risks of litigation.

If We Must Go To Trial

Most divorce and family law issues are ultimately settled through negotiation or mediation. While Cole Law Group attorneys are first and foremost litigators, our family law attorneys are always prepared to reach an amicable outcome and to do so with minimum distress and maximum value. Some cases, however, are so divisive that trial is the only path to resolution, and in the event that your case must go to trial, rest assured we will be thoroughly prepared to advocate aggressively for your best interests and protect your legal rights.
