Having helped hundreds of our clients through divorces, we understand the personal, emotional toll the process takes. We put our clients first, and will always promptly return your phone calls and handle your case with discretion and sensitivity to the important issues in your divorce. No two clients or two divorces are the same, and we will prepare thoroughly and advise you of all of your options throughout the process. We strive to minimize the impact of the divorce on your children, and work to resolve all child custody issues and other points of conflict informally through mediation where possible. If we need to resort to the courts to resolve issues in the divorce, we will represent your interests aggressively and competently in court.

While divorce is emotionally difficult, it is also often very financially difficult. Division of assets is one of the primary concerns of the law in a divorce, and it is often a primary concern of our clients.

This business background gives Ms. Bickford unique insights into the financial ramifications of your divorce, and helps the firm to analyze and plan around all the financial aspects of your case with a high degree of competency. The firm also regularly works with other financial experts, including appraisers, economists, and other expert consultants.
