At Alford & Burkhart, we understand that your decision to speak with an attorney about your family matters is a very personal decision, most often connected to emotional and, sometimes traumatic, issues in your and your family’s lives. We exercise compassion in these cases by listening closely to your concerns, interests, and your desired results from your relationship with our firm. Throughout each case, we communicate with our client, educate him or her about the process and possible results, and we solicit the client’s thoughts and feelings to help form our strategies. The will to understand others is the basis of our compassion.
In contentious cases, our family law attorneys provide aggressive advocacy. We do not wage war in the courtroom. Even when emotions are running high, amicable resolutions can be reached through the help and guidance of experienced counsel. Clients’ best interests can often be best served by aggressive advocacy in negotiations, or other dispute resolution methods, resulting in resolution before a case reaches trial. However, we are focused on the results. If the desired outcome for your case cannot be negotiated, we will continue to aggressively advocate for your rights and interests through litigation of your case, including trial.
One of Alford & Burkhart’s primary goals in providing clients with compassionate representation and aggressive advocacy is to alleviate some of the concerns and worries about the outcome of your case. Through each step of the case, we define the goals and expectations with the client’s input, and we focus on achieving results based upon those goals and expectations. From custody issues to financial issues, the results in a family law case must be effective, long-term solutions designed for the welfare of individuals, children, and families.
