Hi, I’m Steve. I’m one of the lawyers here at the Houston Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service. I’ve been with the service for over 30 years and my area of specialty is family law.
I’m here to talk to you today about family law cases. Many of you either have child support cases, child custody cases, or just regular divorce cases and they can cause a serious amount of anxiety.
Sometimes you can’t even sleep at night because of those constant concerns and worries. One of the nice things about the Houston Lawyer Referral Service program, once you call the service and you meet and decide to hire one of the lawyers on the service, you’ll have the opportunity to work one-on-one with your attorney.
That does not mean you necessarily have to go into an intimidating courtroom. In fact, most of our cases today are totally resolved in the Alternative Dispute Resolution process, commonly referred to as Mediation.
You and your lawyer will be in a private room, where you’ll discuss your private matters, where your spouse is in another room. In fact, you don’t even have to be in the same room together.
Although it’s important for parents to work together, sometimes when you’re dealing with difficult decisions, it’s nice to be able to work that completely privately with your attorney.
We’re here to help. Call the Houston Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service.
