Ohio Divorce Attorney: What Do You Do?

jamie2A few years ago the only place that an attorney could advertise was the phone book.  Most attorneys chose to make the most of the ad space by publishing a “panel” of services they provided.  This list of services is going the way of the horse whip, but you still see it occasionally on web sites.  In honor of those days when attorneys would list every service they provide, I’m including the list of family law services I provide.  If you need to speak to an attorney, please give me a call at (937) 879-9542.

The way we will handle your case involves a three-step approach: Advising, Negotiating and Litigating. Advising is more than helping you fill out forms and charging a retainer fee; it is a meaningful two-way communication that shapes what the attorney client relationship will become. Failing this dialogue, its absence will become achingly apparent when the attorney goes behind closed doors to discuss your case. Negotiation is also a two-way street involving a realistic acceptance of your position, articulation of the goals of your case and the realities of the adversarial process. If you have communicated successfully with your attorney, you can expect to prepare a legal strategy that will focus on your desired outcome. Those parameters will be the basis of all discussions with the other side. Litigation results when you cannot reach a desired result through negotiation. Your attorney must prepare for litigation from the first consultation in order to maximize the chances of reaching your desired result. The work of an attorney in the court room is the pinnacle of years of training and experience. If your attorney is unable or unwilling to litigate, your ability to negotiate a favorable settlement will be compromised.

Going through a divorce and/or custody battle is a traumatic a heart-wrenching process. You must choose an attorney with whom you are completely comfortable. Often, you will have to choose the better of two bad options and the only input you will have will be the experience and judgment of your counsel. Somewhere out there, you can find the attorney that is right for you.  Finding the right family law attorney starts with a free face-to-face consultation.
