Preserving Your Financial Resources

We encourage our clients to seek an amicable resolution rather than engage in lengthy, stressful, and expensive litigation. We believe it is better to preserve your financial resources for your family rather than spend them on attorney's fees and court costs. However, if an agreement cannot be reached outside of the courtroom, we have the experience and knowledge to effectively represent your interests and goals at trial. All the while, we pay close attention to your financial concerns and strive to resolve your case in the most cost-effective manner. 

Compassionate Advice & Guidance

You may have questions every step of the way and we are here to answer them.  We pride ourselves on making sure our clients understand what to expect at each stage throughout their case and what is coming up next.  The most common complaint regarding family law attorneys is their lack of communication with clients.  Here at Martin & Wagner, P.A., we make every effort to return all phone calls and respond to all e-mails as soon as possible because your concerns are important to us.
