About Fresh Start Family Law
Learn Our Approach to Family Law in Raleigh & Beyond
Fresh Start Family Law is a name that combines the exclusive field of law we practice combined with our intentions as to what our services can do for you. We took great care in choosing a name for our firm. We wanted it to reflect our unique approach. Having practiced only family law for approximately 30 combined years, we joined forces as attorneys to create something new, exciting, and dynamic.
The law is not set in stone; in fact, changes occur every day. We are a firm devoted entirely to family law matters involving divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, the division and distribution of marital property and debt, separation agreements, post-separation support, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, adoption, and domestic violence. Narrowing our field of representation to family law exclusively affords us the ability to stay abreast of new developments and provide our clients with the most informed, up-to-date representation possible. Our philosophy is that the best way to grow a business is to do what is right for each individual client.
What We Stand For
Fresh Start Family Law stands for the principle that everyone needs and deserves a fresh start at some point in their life – sometimes more than once. People change, move, and build new careers. We all generally evolve throughout our lives. Our goals or priorities shift. Our interests and abilities grow or decline. Sometimes the changes take place in our families, such as marriage, adoption, or divorce. Sometimes they take place in post-divorce situations. When these changes involve the family, a family law attorney at our firm is here to help.
We believe that the approach to separation, divorce, and their attendant issues does not require a smear campaign between you and your spouse resulting in high expenses and leaving you emotionally drained or your children torn between their parents. We believe your money and time is better spent securing a safe and positive future for both you and your children.
While we are prepared to represent our clients in contentious litigation when necessary to protect your rights, we feel it just isn’t necessary in most cases. It delays the process of healing, moving on, and experiencing a fresh start in life. Our legal team wants a new and positive beginning for you as a result of your family law issue – we hope you will let us use our honed skills, extensive knowledge, and commitment to success on your behalf.
