Don’t let the fear of legal costs determine your representation
Low rates are no substitute for skill and compatibility.
Our approach to divorce is deliberate and determined. You tell us what defines a successful outcome for you, and we create and execute a legal strategy to protect what you value most.
Investing in a good divorce lawyer is investing in your future. You need a family law firm with experience, resources and a track record you can trust.
You’ve probably spent some time thinking about what you would have done differently in your marriage.
Don’t start your new life saddled with a regret-filled divorce.
The person ruling on your divorce is a person too.
Just like spouses and attorneys, judges have their own priorities, personalities and tendencies.
With one judge, a dry “just the facts” approach can win brownie points. Others favor arguments with more of an emotional appeal.
At Divergent Family Law we consider every aspect influencing the outcome of your divorce and tailor our strategies based on all the factors.
Divorce isn’t about you - not yet.
Until the final divorce decree, it’s about protecting and investing in your future happiness.
Divorce is universally stressful and expensive. Intelligent planning for your future happiness should be your primary objective during the divorce process.
When you take away the stigma, disruption, and drama, divorce is just a legal process. We’ll help you define your goals and use our knowledge of the legal system to obtain the best possible start to the next chapter of your life.
