"The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today."
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


Individuals often find that the “legal process” can be more confusing, upsetting and harder to navigate than the actual substantive law involved in their issue.

Knowledge is Power

  • What forms do I need to fill out?
  • When do they have to be filed with the court?
  • How many copies do I need?
  • Can I file documents electronically?
  • How do I access court decisions for cases similar to mine?
  • What are my obligations to the other party when it comes to providing documents and giving notice?
  • What do I call the judge?

Imagine the benefit of having someone you can call on to explain these things and more to you in simple straight-forward language, without any “legalese”. Imagine having  someone who knows and understands the process explaining to you not just what happens next, but how the whole process will work from start to finish.
