Brea Divorce Attorney
Our Solution Based Approach to Family Law:
Less Conflict = Exceptional Results
If you are seeking a family law attorney, then clearly things are in a state of disarray in your life. At the Law Offices of Jamison K. Shedwill our sole focus is to find a solution to your situation allowing you to move forward to better and happier times. To accomplish this, our approach is different. We believe that bitterly contested litigation and the philosophy that "the best defense is a good offense" is not only counter-productive but is expensive and destructive beyond comprehension. There is a better way!
Our Approach to Your Family Law Matter
Beginning with the initial consultation, we take the time to thoroughly understand your individual situation, then explore and discuss all of the options available with a particular emphasis on how best to diffuse a state of affairs, which may have already devolved into contentiousness and nastiness. Not all cases can avoid court appearances and judicial determinations (nor should they); however, it should not be the role of the family lawyer to throw gasoline on the fire and march headlong into battle without thinking about the consequences or considering alternative options.
No one "wins" in high conflict divorce or custody cases and the financial and emotion costs of such highly contentious litigation with uncertain and unpredictable outcomes (yes, judges are fallibly human) can have lasting and devastating effects on the individuals involved and particularly on their children whom they should be shielding and protecting.
Zealous Advocacy and Wise Counsel
After 20 years of practice law, I have learned that it is possible to be a zealous advocate for my clients AND a passionate peacemaker committed to finding that common ground and path toward resolution that will avoid Armageddon. I have learned that "compromise" is not a dirty word, nor a sign of weakness, but instead is a useful and necessary tool that can and will lead to a dissipation of conflict and ultimately a mutually satisfying resolution. And, I have learned that my role as "counselor" is often far more important than my role as lawyer/advocate. There is another way.
