Practical Advice for those Feeling Anxious & Uncertain

Advice for those Feeling Anxious & UncertainFamily law issues affect our most intimate relationships. The effect on our lives is often feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. Such powerful emotions cloud a person’s ability to make clear choices to the point they search for help and guidance. To ensure that you make the best possible decisions that will affect your future two, ten, or even 20 years from now, you should sit down with a skilled and experienced family law attorney. Why? Think about it. In your mind, put yourself in our shoes. Picture yourself as a lawyer in a quiet, private office, behind the same desk every day of our career for 30 years talking with someone just like you — in a similar life predicament! We have sat across the desk in intimate, private counsel with literally thousands of men and women facing the exact same life circumstances as you are facing now.

When we graduated law school we had no idea that we would –inadvertently– become a source of wisdom and practical advice for couples, mothers and fathers, and even grand parents seeking life advice as much as they might also need some legal advice. We are willing, when appropriate, to share our experience with those who sit down with us for a complementary strategy meeting.

While we don’t have a crystal ball – most of our clients —going back to 1987— remain in touch as friends and former clients. We have witnessed all these many personal life journeys, from their darkest days, to the years following — including the healing and positive life events that followed. While we can’t disclose the names, we can certainly share the stories that best dovetail to your unique current circumstance so that you have some real life input to help put your life in perspective so you can better chart your course forward.

Whether you decide to begin your divorce process right now, or you just want to consider your situation, Nemiroff & Cohen, LLP offers unbundled services or full representation when you decide it is time to have someone on your side to help you through the process.

The Right Lawyer Can Make a Real Difference

It seems as if there is an infinite number of family law and divorce lawyers in the San Fernando Valley area. The truth is, the number of good ones is small and finite. A good one… That is what you want –– not just any lawyer to handle your divorce or family law matter –– but a family law firm with personable lawyers who fit you and your case. That is why you are here.

This is “Family Law!” — not Personal Injury Law. There is NO fat check waiting for you at the end! If you are getting divorced, the less money you spend on attorney’s fees, the more money you have to divide between yourself and your spouse.

Whether your spouse has an attorney, or not, we have a strong reputation for settling cases without the need for trial. Less time in Court results in less money spent in attorney’s fees and an increased satisfaction with the outcome of your case, because you know better than anyone — including a stranger wearing a black robe — what is most important to you.
