The American model for resolving legal disputes is an adversarial system involving high conflict. This may protect the interests of business litigants in civil court but tends to ignore the consequences of making a contest over every issue to individuals and families in the family law setting. It encourages otherwise decent people to become obsessed with “winning” often at the expense of everyone involved, resulting in a black hole of vicious unproductive litigation.
Whether the adversarial system is ideal for resolving family law disputes is a query best left to the philosophers. The more relevant question is how do you reach the end of a family law case without falling prey to the pitfalls of adversarial litigation? There is no one answer to this question, but one solution is having the right attorney by your side. The right attorney can guide you through your family law case, productively reaching settlements outside of court when possible and vigorously advocating for your interest in court when appropriate.
How Talkov Law Attorneys Handle California Family Law Matters
Our firm understands that not every case needs to be high conflict, and we work with our clients to achieve personalized resolutions to their problems. When settlement is impossible or unfavorable, we are also skilled trial attorneys who are ready to fight for our clients.
Our attorneys know that it is often best for everyone involved if an agreement is able to resolve a family law matter. Whether that involves negotiating a marital settlement agreement, joint child custody agreement, agreement for sole custody of a child, or a pet custody agreement, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to effectively and efficiently get results for our clients.
When parties are unable to come to an agreement in their family law matter, our attorneys are able to effectively advocate on behalf of the clients we represent in contested child custody cases, move-away trials, child custody modification proceedings, contempt proceedings, and other contested matters in family court. We ensure our clients’ interests are protected from beginning to end, drafting declarations on their behalf and preparing them for court-ordered mediation.
While keeping the cost of litigation in mind, we strive to develop the best legal strategy to achieve your goals without overextending costs. When settlement is possible—as it often is—we are effective negotiators, often obtaining favorable settlement of entire cases without ever stepping into the courtroom. However, when settlement is impossible or unfavorable, we are also skilled trial attorneys who are ready to fight.
Ultimately, we strive to craft the best legal strategy tailored to each case, while steering clear of tactics that would unnecessarily drive up the cost of litigation. Our attorneys are responsive, prepared, and appropriately aggressive from start to finish.
