Our Method

In over 40 years of counseling both men and women in divorce or separation matters, the family law lawyers at Opton & Black have developed a sensitivity for the special needs of our clients:

  • We listen. Our divorce lawyers understand that when divorce or separation is being considered many questions arise that need answers.
  • We get to the point. We do not waste time during our initial interview with unnecessary forms and information.
  • We answer your questions with direct and clear information to help you understand your legal position and possible courses of action.
  • We do not pressure potential clients to decide to proceed with a divorce or to hire us. These matters will come if and when the client feels they are right.
  • We are accessible.

From the outset of any divorce case, our divorce lawyers identify and resolve the issues in the most effective way for the client. We seek to do so with as little disruption as possible to the lives of those involved, especially children.

In marriages with children, our view is that the children must be protected from the disputes arising out of divorce. Divorce has the potential to cause lasting trauma to children. We recognize this, which is why we advise our clients that protecting their children should be their first priority.

We encourage settlement, but not at the expense of our client’s best interest. When necessary, we are always ready to go to trial to protect our clients and to obtain for them what they are entitled to under the law.

When To Contact Us

The broad range of our firm’s legal practice, in business and real estate especially, makes us knowledgeable in areas of law that often affect divorce. Divorce among parties with significant assets requires a working knowledge of business law, issues and solutions in order to advise clients on how best to plan for the future and resolve asset related issues.
