From Sheena’s interview for the Masters of Family Law series on ReelLawyers.com
Family law matters are stressful even under the best of circumstances. Whether you’re getting divorced, fighting for child custody, or working to help a loved one immigrate into the United States, the stakes are high.
This is your family we’re talking about– these are your loved ones, and this is your future.
First and foremost, our job as your legal representatives is to listen to you and help you make sense of the legal options that are available to you. We can promise to always tell you the truth, even if it’s hard to hear. We will not sugarcoat it.
Then, once all of the facts are on the table, we’ll work together to identify the best path forward. Once we’ve made a plan, we will be your advocate every step of the way. It is always best to avoid the courtroom, and when possible, find alternate solutions. But if a courtroom battle is necessary, we’ll fight hard for you every step of the way.
We’re here to listen to you – and to help you protect your loved ones, your finances, and yourself.
With offices in Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida – our focus is on family and marital practice and litigation. This includes complex custody and support litigation and collaborative law divorce. In addition, we are adept at handling property protection, will and estate planning, family-based immigration, and legal needs for small business owners.
We don’t believe in cookie-cutter solutions. Instead, we listen to our clients to help them create the best path forward for their specific situation. Please contact us today if you’d like to request a free case evaluation.
“I believe in honesty, first and foremost. I’m not going to sugarcoat it – I’ll always tell you the truth so that we can choose the best path forward together.”
