The issues which can come up in the family context, such as separation, divorce, custody, division of property, and support are many faceted. As a Certified Specialist in family law, Doris Hale Slater has helped a wide variety of clients with multiple and varied issues. As these issues present themselves, sometimes at the worst possible times, you may be confronted with overwhelming decisions. We are here to support you and to assist you to navigate these choices throughout the process until completed. We know how to help you, armed with the background of 35 years of experience. We want you to rely upon us for this assistance.
We know your case needs to be handled with skill and sensitivity to obtain the best outcome. We have handled many arbitrations, mediations, settlement conferences, and family law hearings and trials. We also strive to use alternative methods to secure favorable results, including informal negotiation and coaching. If necessary, we are prepared to go to court and litigate a contested matter. Wherever possible, we avoid spending your time and your money in the court process.
We provide our clients with information to explore the various options in dealing with family and related issues. We understand every family dynamic is different and “one size” does not fit all. We are familiar with the judicial officers and their preferences in how cases should be brought to them.
We understand the legal system. The process can be confusing and even intimidating. We try to make it clearer and less overwhelming. Working together we can achieve your goals, whether they be financial or child oriented, or both.
We are, and have always been, dedicated to achieving a cost effective and favorable result, all the while balancing out concerns for the client’s objectives. We take this responsibility seriously. We look forward to working with you to achieve a fair and equitable result.
