Family law is Mark’s area of practice. He has practiced law for over 28 years, and since 1998 has focused on this area of law. Family law involves a wide range of legal, emotional and relational issues, as well as mindful consideration of the family’s future needs after court is over.
What is Mark’s approach to family law cases?
“Every case and client are different. If my client needs help defining their goals, we work on that first, and then come up with a game plan for how to most efficiently achieve the goals. Some cases require an approach sensitive to mediation and negotiation, while other cases require a stronger and more assertive litigation-oriented approach in court. Some cases do better with a mix of assertiveness and negotiation. Once I understand the client’s issues and goals, I find the right tool for the job at hand. Often, we employ a team approach, utilizing my paralegal/Legal Tech, legal assistant and sometimes other professionals for parenting, financial, and property issues.”
