IN A SETTLEMENT MEETING, THE PARTIES ARE IN CONTROL OF THE OUTCOME

by | Mar 23, 2013 | Divorce, Family Law, Settlement

I attended a settlement meeting yesterday. The clients and their attorneys met for an hour and made a good faith effort to resolve their family law dispute but were unable to bridge the gap. In the parking lot, on the way out, the former spouses began to talk once again. I watched through a window as they stood there speaking to each other.  Ninety minutes later, they came back inside and announced that they had reached a settlement.

This is what can happen if parties to a family law dispute make the effort to speak to each other openly and honestly, but also calmly, respectfully, and amicably. Sometimes the best thing the attorneys can do is just get out of the way.

Client Reviews

Very honest

November 2009 I retained Mr. Frank almost two years to represent me in a visitation modification filed by my ex-husband. Mr. Frank quickly and efficiently became familiar with my case and was very honest about all the potential results that could occur. I truly feel that Mr. Frank had my children’s best interests in mind…
