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 question best left to the legal philosophers. The more relevant question is how do you reach the end of a family law case without falling victim to the American adversarial system? 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.
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.
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. As Steven Keeva reminds us in Transforming Practices: Finding Joy and Satisfaction in the Legal Life, “[t]o the extent that you enter it as a calling, the practice of law is about hunger – the hunger for resolution; for healing the lives of individuals,… and communities; for enabling society to function harmoniously and productively; and ultimately, for justice.”
