Family law is at the heart of our practice. It is different than any other area of law because it impacts the very core of each individual – their family. Whether the family is only two people, includes children, or whether the individuals actually marry or not, a person’s family is the center of their individual world. We understand that when difficulties arise in the family, an individual’s personal world is in an upheaval. It is our first goal to bring peace.
We strive to minimize conflict among family members during any difficult and emotional time while protecting the rights of my client through zealous advocacy. Preventing future conflict is as much of our focus as repairing any damage done, but most of our clients come with a desperate need for peace, which we do everything possible to provide as immediately as possible.
What distinguishes this practice is the degree of skill and compassion the attorneys Wayne F. Jentis, Esq. and Victoria A. Kroger, Esq. bring to each case. They carefully evaluate the circumstances of each case, accepting only a limited number of new cases so that they can personally attend to every aspect of each matter. They truly enjoy helping their clients do what is best for them, and they take the time necessary to comprehensively educate clients as to both the legal and emotional ramifications upon themselves and upon the one’s they love, of any actions they consider. This way, each client can weigh the available options and direct our course of action and overall strategy accordingly.
We are skilled litigators, very adept at handling contentious cases, but we also know from experience that the personal nature of family law often calls for an amicable settlement. We are extensively trained and experienced in negotiation & mediation and are dedicated to providing our clients with the best possible advice. We are well respected by area Judges and by our peers and have worked on both sides of the courtroom doors.
Whether your goal is to get through the process as fast as possible, as painlessly as possible, or simply as cost-efficiently as possible, you can be sure that if we accept your case for representation, you will have a zealous advocate on your side that you can count on unequivocally.
