Family law attorneys cover relations between spouses, children, and other domestic relationships. Divorce is one of the most common areas of concern, but family law also deals with other important issues, such as property division, domestic violence, and paternity cases just to name a few.
These family law issues are often complicated cases. Charles M. Green is a Certified California Family Law Specialist* by the State of California Board of Legal Specialization. If you are seeking legal guidance from a family law attorney, it’s essential that you work with an experienced divorce attorney in Los Angeles who understands the range of issues you may face and who has the experience to helping you achieve the best possible outcome.
You may require a family law attorney if you need to address any of these issues:
Not all lawyers have the same philosophy when it comes to your dissolution of marriage. For some attorneys, your case is a legal proving ground, an opportunity for them to do battle with another party and to deliver as much as possible in a “victory.” For others, it’s a chance to take a case before a judge and to litigate the best possible outcome for your future.
There are clients for whom each of these approaches makes sense. However, it’s important you are clear about what you want from your case before you choose an attorney. Los Angeles divorce cases that are conducted in a combative manner can cost you a lot of money in legal fees, and they can be particularly destructive to your relationship with your spouse or children. More fighting = more money.
Also, cases that go before a judge present much more risk than cases that are managed through negotiation and settlement. In a courtroom, the judge hears the evidence and arguments and makes a decision based on external criteria. Alternatively, at the negotiating table, both parties work together to find common ground, which ultimately can give you more of what you want.
Our approach is to protect the rights and general wellbeing of our clients while avoiding unnecessary legal battles. Clients trust us to do this on their behalf because we take the time and care to explain their options, talk through their questions, and make a recommendation that best suits their situation.
Typically, we prefer to settle cases. Our clients and legal team enter these conversations well prepared with the legal and financial information to achieve our goals for you. In cases where the opposing party is inflexible on our most important issues of the case, we prepare a formidable litigation strategy, and will successfully represent you in court to achieve the best possible resolution.
