How Our Family Law Firm Works Differently
To help you through the emotional upheaval of your family law matter, you need an experienced, reliable and trustworthy attorney. At Wilkinson & Finkbeiner LLP, your attorney will possess all three qualities. Please take a minute to learn how we differentiate ourselves from the many family law firm alternatives here in Orange County.
Your first contact with Wilkinson & Finkbeiner will likely be a call or an email to our office requesting a free, confidential consultation about your case. One of our friendly team members will contact you promptly to obtain some background about you and to schedule your consult with one of our experienced family law attorneys. If we can assist you, your consult will usually be scheduled within 24 hours, or at least by the next business day. We know that the issues in your case are time sensitive and require our immediate attention.
At your consult you will be paired with an attorney who exclusively practices family law and who has passed the State Bar of California’s Certified Family Law Specialist exam. The attorney will explain the relevant law and legal options pertinent to your case. If you hire our services, the attorney who assisted you at your consultation will represent you in your family matter. Unlike many firms in OC, you will not be passed off to a newbie attorney, or to an attorney you have never met. We care about establishing a relationship with you at the onset of your case and want you to know we are here for the long run.
When you retain Wilkinson & Finkbeiner, LLP, we will engage in a strategy session designed to give you the best chance of accomplishing your objectives. We will analyze the costs and likelihood of success of the legal options available to you so that your dollars are put to their most efficient use. Early in the case we will assess whether settlement is possible. If litigation is required, the attorney you hired will represent you in court.
Our divorce attorneys recognize that while our clients expect us to be excellent advocates for them, we focus our efforts on realistic goals. When a client tells us that his or her prior attorney charged them thousands of dollars on fruitless endeavors, we know that they went to the wrong firm first. This is why it is important to hire the right firm at the beginning of your case.
At Wilkinson & Finkbeiner, effective communication with you is essential. We pride ourselves on answering client emails and phone calls in a clear, concise and expeditious manner. Those who have been clients of other firms in town often complain that they could never reach their attorney and as a result they did not know what was going on with their case. This should not happen.
Before you take the next step in your family law matter, be informed. We encourage you to give us a call to make sure that you are, or email us through our Contact Us page.
