What Makes Our Family Law Practice Different?

Family lawyer Denise Erlich takes a holistic approach to family law cases, guiding clients through the challenges they face with compassion, honesty, and solid legal advice. Unlike some family law attorneys who push for expensive litigation, and even encourage high-conflict divorce, Denise takes pride in diffusing tense emotional situations to resolve disputes as amicably as possible. She helps families find practical solutions that work for their unique needs, enabling divorcing couples, parents, and their children to avoid unnecessary stress and financial strain.

Why Do You Need to Hire a Family Lawyer?

Whether you’re dealing with a collaborative law divorce or a high-conflict divorce, a child custody or visitation dispute, or you need help with orders of protection, your family’s legal matter is going to be life-changing. Your hopes, dreams, and heartbreaks are going to surface. With them will come various emotional and financial concerns that could be left for the courts to decide. With your family’s future on the line, it’s important to hire a family lawyer to protect your rights and the best interests of your children. Without a family law attorney, you will likely be forced to:

  • Negotiate with your spouse and his or her attorney on your own
  • Navigate the legal system alone
  • Represent yourself in court
  • Let someone else make important decisions about your children, your home, and your property

Let family law attorney Denise Erlich provide you with trustworthy, zealous, and responsive legal representation so you and your family can move forward to live your best life.

Denise was very helpful in my divorce. After my first meeting with her, I knew she was the lawyer I wanted on my side. She was very calm and personable. She answered any and all of my questions promptly and with great detail.
She not only looked out for myself, but also my children. I would highly recommend Denise while going through a divorce, especially one with children as she cares about their well being.
