Welcome to my website.  If you're looking to save your money and your sanity, then this website was designed for you. Not only will I provide you with the latest and most current family law information, but I will show you tricks that divorce lawyers know, but don't readily want to share with you.  If you call around, most retainers in the area will start at $3,000 and go up to $10,000 depending on the facts of the case.


It doesn't have to be this way. You have likely found your way to this website because you are either contemplating a divorce, a custody battle, or you are already in the middle of the legal process and realize something is wrong. Court is obviously a little unsettling and can provide for a fair amount of anxiety and stress, but avoiding court isn't a dream - its a reality for many.  I have prepared this site to relieve some of the angst while you consider your options.  


This site should provide you with the information that you likely need to make informed decisions about your case or about selecting a lawyer before it all starts.  If you're already in the middle of the process, this website will explain why things are going wrong for your case, and how to get control of runaway litigation and the resulting attorney's fees.

While each case is different, many people will tell you how disenchanted they are with the family law system and the manner it handles a family and its legal issues.  An "assembly line process" accurately describes how family law matters are handled in court, and very little attention is placed on the emotional complexities of someone's life.  To add insult to injury, lawyer's fees generally plague the system. You can avoid an unpleasant process, despite the fact that the system is against you.


Everyone has heard of the "bloodbath" divorce or custody case, and many people will say that it took too long and cost too much money. Often there's plenty of blame to go around. Getting a great and affordable result is not impossible, but can be a reality for many with the right kind of lawyer, but more importantly, with the right kind of approach.  


Selecting a lawyer shouldn't be knee-jerk or something with the assumption that any divorce or custody lawyer will do.  Not all lawyers are created equally.   


Hopefully, the articles on this website will help you weed through the obstacles of your case and selecting a lawyer and how to best approach your case.


Take your time, and good luck in the process.

All my best,

Paul D. Nordini
