Trust in the Divorce & Family Law Attorney-Client Relationship

Our firm understands the importance of trust in the attorney-client relationship. As our family law client your privacy will be protected, and 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. Cole law attorneys understand that the challenges our clients face are often the toughest they will ever encounter in their lives, and both attorneys and staff are committed to helping 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 divorce and family law attorneys are legal strategists who offer creative, custom-tailored solutions designed to minimize your stress and achieve your objectives efficiently. You will be treated with dignity and respect 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 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 at Cole Law benefit from the inclusive approach our attorneys utilize in developing legal 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 maximize the 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 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. Most divorce and family law cases are resolved outside the courtroom. Some legal issues, 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.

What to Expect in Your Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation with a Cole Law attorney, you should be prepared to discuss the facts and details of your situation fully and frankly in order to ensure that your case can be properly evaluated. The information you discuss during your initial consultation is confidential and is held in the strictest confidence, and Cole Law attorneys can give you better legal advice if they have a better understanding ofyour circumstances. Our attorneys will also guide you through a general overview of the legal process and what you should expect depending on how your case may unfold. If you believe you are in possession of important evidence or documents regarding your case, you should bring those materials with you to your consultation so they can be reviewed by the attorney and discussed with you at the time of the consultation. Although litigation can be stressful and difficult – particularly in cases of divorce and family law – the goal of your initial consultation is to help you gain an understanding of the legal process, what your options are, and how you can effectively partner with our Cole Law attorneys to develop a strategy to navigate, litigate, and resolve your case.
