How does your firm utilize support staff, including paralegals and legal assistants?

In order to deliver the highest quality representation to our clients, Davis Friedman utilizes the support of legal assistants, paralegals and other support staff to craft the best possible case and expedite the process. However, the support staff is just that: support. While some firms may employ support staff to perform legal tasks, at Davis Friedman all substantive legal work on your case will be conducted by qualified, experienced attorneys.

Does my divorce have to be a fight?

Divorce does not have to be an acrimonious process, and the attorneys at Davis Friedman know that few families want to turn an already painful situation into a brawl. Litigation is not always the answer, and the attorneys have experience in dealing with a range of approaches, including mediation and collaborative divorce proceedings. Even when litigation is the only answer, it does not mean the gloves have to come off. Davis Friedman’s attorneys know how to minimize conflict where possible – but they are also fully prepared for a fight if it is necessary. The final approach will be up to to the client and their attorney, based on the particulars of their case.

What can I do to prepare for my divorce before proceedings begin?

Davis Friedman’s attorneys always appreciate when a client understands that the divorce process begins well before any formal legal action is taken. While every case is different, it is always helpful to adjust your behavior so as to present yourself in the best possible light.

How long does the average case take?

The duration depends on each individual case as shaped by the specific circumstances and the people involved. But as your attorney becomes familiar with the details of the situation, he or she will be better able to predict a timeline for the duration of the case. Here is one important rule of thumb: A case settled between the parties is almost always finished before a case decided by a trial.
