Read about Christina's approach and which Hudson Valley areas the firm serves.
Often the work of attorneys is discussed in terms of warfare - fighting, battling, blindsiding, aggressiveness, adversary, wins and losses. While there are some areas of law in which that mentality may be an advantage, I suggest that Family Law requires a more nuanced and holistic approach. This is not an area of law in which you reach a settlement or have a trial and you never see the person on the other side again. Usually the person on the other side is someone you loved once, someone you have children with, someone with whom you ultimately want peace. Especially if you have children together, you may have to see this person regularly for years to come. The decisions you make now during this stressful time, how you make them, choose to implement them, and who you choose to represent you during the process can have a lasting impact on the entire family and set the tone for how you will interact with each other going forward.
You need an attorney who understands that, appreciates it, and who treats the well-being of you and your family with respect from the beginning of your case to the end. There is always a bigger picture in family law and it is incumbent on any attorney practicing in this area to be ever-cognizant of that. I approach all of my family law cases with this in mind. If you are looking only to make the other side pay or make the process as difficult or costly as possible for the other person, then I am not the right attorney for you.
While no attorney can guarantee results, my commitment to your case is that I will be tireless and resolute in protecting your rights and getting you the fairest outcome possible while being as cost-efficient as possible. Settlement and resolution with the least court intervention possible is always my intention and first priority out of respect for you, your family, and your wallet.
