At Helfand & Associates, we have handled thousands of divorce and family matters to successful conclusion from the most complicated to the simplest, straight-forward cases. We are well respected, strong and fair. If you can settle your issues at any point in the case, we will work quickly to finalize and help you move on with your life. If you need to litigate, we are experienced and will fight for your rights and the rights of your children.
We care about you, your children, and your pocketbook. We listen to your unique situation and help guide you through the divorce process. Our mission is to stand by your side through this difficult process, advocate and give you the best advice and guidance. You are not just a file.
We are a boutique firm with staff large enough to provide exceptional legal service and an enormous range of experience. However, we are always striving to provide personal attention to our clients during this tough time and treat you with respect.
You should get a divorce and a reasonable settlement that your spouse and your children can live with. You should be able to move on to a better future. Facing a divorce, or any court issue, is a scary event. It is often confusing, too. We make the process simpler for you and your family. We litigate with firms large and small. Our lawyers are smart, trustworthy, diligent, passionate, and persistent.
We are clear and upfront about the law, the cost, and the possible outcomes, so you can make reasonable informed decisions about the process. Knowledge is power.
Most of the time, a divorce can take less than a year. Most people have issues that, with proper disclosure and information, can be resolved months into the process. Your lawyer should make an effort to settle and discuss the benefits and detriments (both financial and emotional) of continued litigation over settlement. Obviously not everyone can settle within months, but most can if the proper efforts are made at the right time.
We cannot pick your spouse’s lawyer to guarantee a reasonable proceeding, but we are totally dedicated and experienced in obtaining the information you need and pushing towards proper resolution. We work with ethical, qualified experts for custody and economic matters when needed.
