Do I Need a Lawyer?
A few things to consider when choosing a law firm.
We help clients who accept they can no longer live within the constraints of their marriage. When both spouses agree they truly are at the point where their acceptance of divorce brings about the most favorable chances of an outcome, you both peacefully accept working to a mutual end will be the best resolution. It minimizes emotional trauma and healing begins.
At Rousseau Law and Mediation, PLLC, we understand the deeply delicate nature of divorce and family law issues and appreciate the private impact these cases have on our clients. Divorce and family law matters are among the most stressful, taxing, heart-rending, and convoluted of any which our clients encounter. Rousseau Law and Mediation, PLLC has vast experience in all facets of divorce and family law allowing us to handle these difficult issues in a personal and effective manner. We can provide vigorously litigated representation of your case, yet we are also trained and certified in several alternate methods of settling your matter out of Court, such as Mediation and Collaborative Law.
We have successfully handled cases involving divorce, parental rights and responsibilities, visitation, child support, alimony, property distribution, premarital planning, post-divorce issues, paternity disputes, same-sex issues and other legal issues that affect families. We also provide services in Will and Advance Directive preparation. Our knowledge, experience, and expertise in divorce and family law enable us to guide our clients through these difficult and stressful family disputes in a professional and caring manner. It is important to us that our clients understand that in the divorce and family law arena, we are truly counselors at law.
Being counselors, we are especially successful with having prepared clients. Clients who accept they can no longer live within the constraints of their marriage and both spouses agree to that fact are truly at the point where their acceptance of divorce brings about the most favorable chances of an outcome you both peacefully accept will happen. It minimizes emotional trauma and healing begins. Our services support one client if one party wants their own consul, and we can support both spouses through our mediation services.
We also understand the couple where there is only one party wishing for divorce, and the other, well not. We provide our clients with the support and guidance they need to make informed choices and then, if necessary, our lawyers advocate vigorously to help them reach their goals and move on with their lives.
