Q: What changes or innovations are on the horizon in your industry? How are you preparing for them?

A: The COVID-19 pandemic has created especially challenging circumstances for the courts, which get a high volume of people through their doors every day. The circuit courts have slowly begun allowing the return of in-person hearings and trials, but virtual appearances have been so efficient, everyone is wondering whether they’ll continue. Our firm has made it a priority to learn the new procedures being used by the courts, and we’ve updated our conference rooms to safely accommodate remote hearings, mediations and trials.

Q: What qualities do you think a successful family lawyer should have?

A: Every family law attorney must have knowledge in a wide variety of areas – from real estate and tax law, to trusts and estates – and be skilled in settlement negotiations, dispute resolution and trial strategy. Client communication is a priority. Lawyers must clearly explain options, along with the costs and benefits of each approach – and communicate everything with empathy. Being respectful of the opposing counsel is also critical.

Q: How do you measure success?

A: Our goal is to help each client resolve disputes in a way that leaves them as whole as possible and able to move on to the next chapter in their lives. We take an individualized approach to every case, and we measure our success by client satisfaction. We inform clients about every step of the process, explore realistic solutions and pursue the best approach to meet their goals.
