When a case is prepared and managed properly, it can be resolved favorably. Sometimes the proper management of a case takes a little more time or may be more expensive but there is no substitute for a properly prepared case. However, we also understand that it takes two to settle a case. Sometimes cases cannot be settled. When that happens, my experience in the courtroom assures you that you will receive aggressive representation in the courtroom.
We understand the emotional and financial toll that litigation has upon our clients. Aside from the immediate stree-ss of litigation, the potential to irreparably fracture the relationship between parents with young children is ever-present when cases are mismanaged. Our goal is to obtain the best and most reasonable result possible under the circumstances of out client’s case. We settle when we can but litigate when we must. Settling a case increases the likelihood of preserving preserve an amicable relationship between the parties involved. This is particularly important when children are involved. When settlement is successful, it minimizes the emotional stress, significantly reduces the financial impact of representation and sets the stage for more positive outcomes. There is no question that litigation is a full-contact sport and emotions and feelings are often sacrificed in the heat of trial. Nevertheless, we have the experience and familiarity with all the courts in Martin County, St. Lucie County, Palm Beach, Okeechobee, Miami-Dade and Broward and stand ready take your case to trial if necessary.
