“The ultimate success of a case is based on the priorities of the client. Each case and client are unique, and the representation of Family Law clients requires that the lawyer have the skills necessary to acknowledge, recognize, and concern oneself with exactly what that specific case and client require during the representation. The lawyer must then couple that knowledge, with their expertise, to zealously advocate for the client, whether it be in court, or during the negotiation process.” -Lindsay Stella
