Top Divorce Lawyers

Marriages break down for many reasons, and it can be extremely difficult to get past the anger, regret and other emotions you feel when you must confront divorce. A knowledgeable, balanced family law attorney can be instrumental in helping you gain perspective and make sound decisions for your future.

At Finley & Lauber LLC, our lawyers are widely respected for navigating complicated divorces for more than 20 years combined. We provide personalized legal advice tailored to the unique needs of every client we serve. Whether you are looking to reach an agreement quickly or are prepared to fight for your best interests in court, Finley & Lauber LLC has the experience, knowledge and skill to protect your rights and help you achieve your goals. We are equally adept at identifying the most practical and efficient solutions for couples who are able to minimize conflict.

Finding the Optimal Approach Based on the Level of Conflict in Your Case

If you and your spouse can agree on child custody, visitation, support and property division, you may be able to complete an uncontested divorce. You can cite irreconcilable differences, and we will carefully draft or review your Marital Settlement Agreement. In many cases, this process can be completed within a short time frame and at a minimal expense.

Clear, Long-Standing Strengths in Mediation and Divorce Litigation

More often, couples have serious difficulty settling critical issues on their own. You may disagree about the custody arrangement; what is best for your children; whether maintenance is justified; the value of a business; or who will receive certain possessions.

We embrace the challenges presented by contested family law matters, and we can guide you every step of the way through:

  • Mediation. As certified mediators we steer clients to this process when appropriate. Mediation is often the best way to keep decision-making within the family and contain costs among other benefits.
  • Divorce litigation. When a divorce involves issues that resist resolution through compromise, we advocate skillfully and strategically for our client, targeting the best achievable results through maximum preparation.
