The family law attorneys of Ward Potter LLC, are compassionate, skilled, and hard-working. We provide our clients a personalized approach to their specific situation. We realize that each individual is different and requires a customized strategy focused on an optimal resolution for their case. Most of the cases taken by our firm involve high assets, business interests, or litigated custody issues.
Our emphasis is on family-related matters, including divorce and legal separation, division of property, marital agreements, child custody and parenting time, child in need of care, adoption, and paternity. We also provide litigation alternatives such as collaborative family law and mediation.
We understand that each case is important, and we are committed to helping our clients through some of life’s toughest challenges. We emphasize frequent communication to keep our clients up-to-date on the status of their case.
