At Rosen Hagood, we understand that the end of a marriage is one of the most stressful and emotionally demanding experiences of our clients’ lives. Along with the emotional turmoil, clients worry about their financial security, child custody issues, protecting assets and what will happen to them in the future as a result of the divorce. This is particularly true when clients have substantial assets or successful professional careers — literally everything they care about is at stake. Moreover, battles of custody of children create tremendous anxiety. In these situations, it is essential to consult with an experienced family law attorney as soon as possible. Without proper legal advice, clients often make uninformed decisions in the heat of the moment that have serious and unexpected adverse consequences for them.
Rosen Hagood’s Family Law practice will educate you and give you peace of mind about the family court process. We strongly advocate for our clients throughout the entire process, from start to finish. Our attorneys know that family law often involves very personal legal matters in child custody and property division cases, ranging from a spouse’s adultery to financial issues to concerns about parental fitness. Clients need attorneys with the experience, legal knowledge and interpersonal skills to help them through this major life transition and experience. Our attorneys have that knowledge, ability and experience.
Our goal in every case is to arrive at a comprehensive solution as quickly as possible so that clients can move on with their lives. In many cases, this resolution can be accomplished with smart preparation and negotiation that leads to a settlement agreement in a relatively short time period. Mediation is often the best and quickest way to accomplish this goal. Unfortunately, sometimes issues are more complex or the opposing spouse is irrational or unreasonable and litigation becomes necessary — to either compel a fair settlement and/or to obtain a favorable result. We have extensive trial and appellate court experience, including handling complex cases involving business valuations, high-income/net worth cases, as well as high conflict custody matters. Whether your situation is straightforward or complex, Rosen Hagood attorneys will represent your best interests in all issues arising out of your family court matter.
