Not quite ready?Divorce can be an intimidating and stressful process. But divorce is different here: there are no secrets, no mysteries. We take anxiety and distrust out of the picture by giving you complete knowledge and control of the process and its costs. You’ll have the information and confidence to make the decisions you need to move on with your life.

Over the years our clients have revealed some secrets of their own. Before they met us, they had a very different view of lawyers and were understandably ambivalent about getting a lawyer involved. We don’t take that personally.

“I’ll call you if it gets REALLY UGLY.”

We know you’re not happy about having a lawyer messing in your life. Heck, we’re lawyers and we don’t always like us. But, the “really ugly” thing is a mistake. You need answers before you enter this process. The last thing you need is to make decisions about your future, your finances and your children’s future without knowing what you’re doing. You can get the answers you need without handing over control of your life to someone you don’t yet trust.

“I’m worried about the cost.”

You should be. This process can quickly get out of hand if you lose control. That’s why we ask you to stay in control. We’ll do our part by promising you fixed fees. That keeps the hourly billing monster from taking over your life. We also offer Flash Divorce so that you can run the case yourself, without the day-to-day involvement of a lawyer. With Flash Divorce, you have everything you need to do the work yourself – but, you’ll have the insightful review of an attorney to help you avoid mistakes before you file.

“Lawyers make it worse.”

It certainly feels that way sometimes. One lawyer takes action, the other responds, the husband and wife get sucked into the conflict and away we go. That’s why we offer alternatives to the traditional process. We can help you with collaborative divorce,mediation and arbitration. We can also help you deal directly with your spouse and get things settled with minimal involvement by us. We’ve found ways to avoid the old rules and systems so you can do it your way.

We’ve all heard stories of courtroom horrors: the “my way or the highway” approach imposed on clients, $20,000 attorney fees, years of litigation and families end up feeling like their case got resolved in a back room deal without their input or consent.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Our motto is “Divorce is different here” because our Philadelphia divorce attorneys truly do it differently. We hand control back to our clients. We do everything in our power to achieve a result that meets your expectations and we do it the way you want it done. We help you control the costs, manage the conflict and stay in control. You’ve got an idea about how your new life is going to look and we’re here to help you achieve your objectives. Divorce truly is different here.
