Active Listener — Powerful Advocate
At the Law Office of Craig A. Patton, we strive to empower our clients by actively listening to their concerns and advocating for the best interests of their families. Our clients are treated with respect, and are given the attention they need and deserve during this challenging time in their lives.
Attorney Craig A. Patton and his staff empower our clients by preparing them for every stage of the litigation or settlement process.
Divorce Is Not A Game; It Is A Parting Of Ways, And It Can Be Accomplished Respectfully.
Divorce is a serious life transition, but it is not about winning or losing a war. Two people who have been united in marriage will go their separate ways. When children are involved, they will likely spend time with parents separately for the rest of their lives.
Allowing the process of divorce to generate a winner or loser only creates more confusion and sadness. A prolonged legal conflict creates a financial and emotional drain that leaves families hurting. A court battle is not inevitable, even in the case of a high-asset divorce.
While there are times that litigation is the only alternative, even challenging property division and child custody issues can often be settled amicably and reasonably, with respect for the needs of both spouses and in the best interests of children.
Prospective clients sometimes ask whether our firm is aggressive, especially in the courtroom. Rest assured that when a contested divorce heads in this direction, the Law Office of Craig A. Patton is prepared to fight for your interests, aiming for the best possible outcome for you.
There is, however, a big difference between being aggressive and being unreasonable — and the courts do not favor the latter. It is nearly always better to compromise and settle your case with certainty rather than to risk the unknowns of litigation.
