STRAIGHT TALK. STRONG ADVOCACY.
Divorce. Custody. Support. Property Division. Whether you are arguing over large retirement accounts or ash trays, the legal issues in your case may cause you tremendous heartache and stress. Most of our clients are good people who have been side-swiped by a lawsuit that hits them where it hurts the most: their children, their heart, their pocket book, their mental and emotional stability. By the time the clients call us, they have been suffering; they are in pain and exhausted - emotionally and psychologically. Some of our clients are in pain physically because they have been abused by their spouse. We are here to help. We will reduce your stress and alleviate your suffering. We will help you navigate the legal system and help you reach your objectives, and we do it with straight talk to our clients and opposing parties and strong advocacy for our clients.
For over 23 years, Ms. Parker has listened to her clients' stories. She has mediated and litigated thousands of cases, including child support, paternity, visitation, custody, property division, termination of parental rights, and adoptions. She has provided zealous advocacy for her clients, and focused 22 of those 23 years practicing exclusively family law. She is Board Certified in Family Law, and is a credential family law mediator.
Because we have dealt with many different facts and legal issues, we've developed a philosophy and a system that we use to help our clients accomplish their legal objectives. Part of our system is focusing on resolving your case quickly, efficiently, and as inexpensively as possible.
When you come to us with a family law problem, whether it's child custody or dividing property or both, we provide you with options on how to approach your case. We provide you with cost estimates based upon the choices available to you. We don't make guarantees on costs because it's the party who drives the costs of the case. Sometimes, it's also the attorney representing the party who creates unnecessary costs of litigation. Regardless, we will give you straight talk, common sense solutions, provide you with the support so that you know we have your back.
We won't know who is causing problems or costing you money until we dive into the facts of your case. We will listen to your side of the story. We will tell you that there are at least 3 sides to every story. We will learn about who's representing the other side, and then we will provide you with some scenarios based upon what we have learned. We will also discuss your expectations, your objectives, and talk to you about your best and worse day in court. We will also talk to you about the advantages or disadvantages of litigating your case in court or resolving your case in mediation, and what to expect in each arena.
Aside from the strong teamwork between Ms. Parker and her paralegal, the firm also has a strong partnership with other professionals, such as financial experts or psychologists/counselors, to support you throughout your case. Additionally, we will also utilize members of your family or friends to be there for you and help us guide you through the legal process so that you know you have a team behind you.
We believe in transparency. It shows in the detailed invoices to our clients. We will keep the costs down for you as much as possible and within our control.
TIME IS MONEY. LET'S SPEND IT WISELY.
The majority of Americans in this country are in the middle class. They have children to feed, a mortgage, at least one car payment, and credit card debts. The majority of the clients coming into our office represents middle America. Even our high net worth clients want to avoid spending their disposable income on attorney fees and other legal costs. They do not appreciate the costs of hiring lawyers. We hear you. We don't like to waste time (yours or ours) and we don't like to waste our client's money. Many of our clients are hands-on, focused, and do not want to leave their workplace to run to a law firm for a meeting. Our firm is one of the few that provides our clients with the latest technology to address their legal needs and goals without requiring them to appear at our office for a consultation or a meeting. We provide our clients with telephone consultations, video-calls, and quick response.
Experience. Transparency. Competency. We will help you navigate the your family law case quickly and efficiently, and help you forge a path into the new chapter of your life.
