“You will find that physical attributes are of no consequence where the battle is one of intellects.
Intellect, voice, personality are all weapons in one’s armoury,
but to none can be ascribed any degree of dominance or even of importance.
There is, however, one quality that can overcome any physical failing, and, fortunately, it is a quality that is yours for the taking.
It is the quality of being or becoming conscientious and diligent.”
E. Morris Technique In Litigation (1969)

We have a passion for family law...
We understand that all family law issues facing our clients are important, no matter how big or small. Therefore we believe that it is very important to first fully understand issues before helping clients resolve matters. Solutions which are outside the box are often only possible if the attorney truly listens and understands the issues. But at the same time, not every problem can be resolved through negotiations. At those times, clients can rest assured that their interests will be protected aggressively.
