A Personalized Approach

“In more than 20 years as an attorney, many clients have come to me after working with another firm, and they tell me that their former lawyers didn’t listen to them. These attorneys just assumed what they would do, and they left the client out of the picture. That is not how I treat my clients. At Vital Law Office & Dispute Resolution Services, we will work as a team. If I am going to help you reach your goals, I need to listen to you and understand your situation, so that’s what I will do.”

In addition to the financial and personal stakes being high in every aspect of divorce, throughout the process you will also face difficult, emotionally charged decisions. There is no substitute for an experienced, knowledgeable advocate at your side.
