At our first meeting while getting to know you and gathering information, we will ask you about your objectives and interests. The whole picture is important, so don’t hold back. We discuss hopes and concerns for you as an individual and as a family member, spouse or parent. Although we focus on the highlights in our first meeting, sometimes the conversation becomes very intense and specific due to an emerging legal issue requiring immediate attention.
We take a look at the legal framework and assess how best to proceed in the context of your goals. Along with the legal discussion, we recommend the most suitable process options to assist you with designing and finalizing an enforceable domestic contract, which could be a separation agreement, marriage contract or cohabitation agreement.
Our focus is on the issues and possible outcomes – not the emotions. We are compassionate, but we don’t throw gas on the fire. If anything, we put a damper on conflict and provide you with necessary tools to manage disputes. Our goal is to enable problem solving both now and, in the future, using our calm, balanced and reasonable approach. We know it can be stressful to find yourself in a lawyer’s office, so we do everything in our power to make you feel educated, empowered and understood.
