Family law cases can arise in a number of different circumstances. While divorce and child custody are probably the ones that come to mind most often, they also include legal separation, parenting time (formerly called visitation), child support and grandparents’ rights.
Pat also handles guardianship and conservatorship cases, which involve having an “alternate decision maker” appointed for a person whose capacity to manage their own personal or financial affairs is diminished.
When working as an advocate (attorney) for a party involved in a family law matter, Pat believes it is important to first listen to the client, identify the legal issues involved and explain the available options. As the case proceeds, she gathers additional information and along the way educates her client about how the law and the client’s life issues intersect. Pat believes in helping the client make informed decisions while understanding the risks involved in their matter.
