At Westlake Legal Group, we are compassionate and responsive to our clients’ needs. The attorneys at Westlake Legal Group have significant family law experience and pride themselves on being able to explain the nuances of Virginia family law for the average citizen. Although the practice of law is in many cases adversarial, when it comes to the family it is not necessarily in the best interest of all parties to take an adversarial approach to the resolution of domestic issues. The attorneys at Westlake Legal Group are experienced in analyzing each individual case and determining whether a less adversarial approach is potentially available and advantageous for you. Often times, an attorney is best utilized by bringing third party clarity to a situation and identifying likely outcomes in the absence of the heated, emotional realm of discussions with one partner or other family members. One of the most significant issues with divorce litigation is that unchecked emotions cause the costs of divorce to skyrocket. Westlake Legal Group takes pride in taking appropriate action to minimize costs of domestic litigation. Unfortunately, cost control is also dependant upon the cooperation and desires of the other side. Nevertheless, Westlake Legal Group will always keep your needs and desires in the forefront of all representation and we have had significant success in handling domestic matters effectively while minimizing the cost to our clients.
