family law

There are very few areas of the law that require more compassion and sensitivity than family law, where every day families and relationships are created and dissolved.

While all family law attorneys focus on the legal aspects of divorces, including property distribution, child custody issues, support issues, parenting time issues, and everything else that enters a person’s life upon divorce, Brazill Hester also focuses on the human side of the law, meaning we never lose touch with the fact that legal arguments and evidence are no more important than the healing necessary when families split up, children are uprooted, ownership of treasured property is challenged, and the page turns to a new chapter of life.

Our attorneys and staff can provide you with the skilled and experienced counsel as well as the support and understanding you need, and you can rest assured that we will be candid and forthright with you regarding all of your legal options. We will not bring an issue regarding families and children into court if unnecessary, but if our client’s best interests suggest litigation is unavoidable, we have the skill and compassion to deal with difficult and emotional issues in the most tactful yet effective way possible.

Our attorneys have experience both in conventional family law litigation, as well as the Collaborative Law process, where you and your spouse keep control of the decisions yourselves, rather than giving them up to a judge. If both parties to a case can pledge not to take the case to court, to provide an honest exchange of information, and to consider solutions that take into account the highest priorities of all family members, the Collaborative Law approach will work for your family. We have been trained as Collaborative Law Professionals to help our clients and their families through a divorce by developing effective relationships, solving problems jointly, and avoiding a court battle. Please let us know if you and your spouse are looking for such an approach where there can be compassionate endings and healthy new beginnings.

No matter if you are considering a divorce or seeking advice as to modification or enforcement of an existing order of custody, support, or visitation of your children, we can provide the passionate yet sensitive counsel you need. If you are considering seeking a guardianship order to be placed over a child or adult, we can effectuate those desires.

If you are looking to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement to eliminate the chance of future strife and controversy, or to preserve a part of your estate for children of an earlier relationship, we can assess your legal position and provide you the security you need.

Regardless of your specific needs, Brazill Hester attorneys will always put family first.
