Our Philosophy

Calm Approach, Noticeable Results

At Sustainable Family Solutions, we’re aware that the common perception when it comes to divorce is that in order to successfully claim what they rightfully deserve, women need a frothing at the mouth pit bull attorney that does everything short of bite to win a fight. That idea saddens us, and we don’t believe that method is an effective way to navigate the difficult process of divorce.

Instead, we believe in the power of reason, preparation, and understanding. We know that matching the aggressive energy of an opposing party does not lead to the best outcomes. Instead, it often leads to unnecessary conflict, stress, and financial strain. We’re not here to escalate conflicts; we’re here to resolve them.

Our philosophy is rooted in partnership. We’re not just your legal representatives; we’re your allies, your advocates, and your guides. We’re beside you every step of the way, ensuring that you’re informed, prepared, and confident. We work diligently to understand your unique situation, your needs, and your goals. We then use this understanding to develop a strategy that is tailored to you.
One of our core ideas is something that might sound like an oxymoron at first– we want to hold your hand and lead you down the path to a “successful divorce.” You might wonder, how can a divorce be successful?

We believe that a successful divorce is one where you come out the other side feeling empowered and ready to move forward. To achieve this, we focus on keeping you level-headed and prepared. We help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and what a reasonable settlement looks like. We understand that this can be a time filled with heightened emotions, and we help you take a measured approach – shrewd instead of bull-headed, savvy instead of ferocious.

If you’re ready to redefine the narrative of divorce, to transform it from a battlefield into a bridge towards a brighter future, then Sustainable Family Solutions are the partners you’re looking for to help you navigate your way to a successful divorce.
