Review of your case and strategy. Clients many times walk into my office seeking relief from the court, that is just not possible given the facts of their case and the current law. Some attorneys will just tell a client what she or he wants to hear and take on any case. I do not believe that it is moral or ethical to take a client’s money for a case that has no chance of winning. I will carefully explain to every client what the law is in relation to the facts of their case. Sometimes, the timing is not right for litigation and the client should wait prior to filing a lawsuit. There are times for example where a client is seeking a downward modification of child support due to the emancipation of one of his or her children. Many times, once the figures are calculated, the payment for one child is greater than two since the non-custodial party is now earning substantially more money than he or she was at the time of the original order. This is but one example of what a family lawyer should examine at the initial consultation prior to taking your case. In order to properly advise a client on the merits of his or her case, a lawyer must have the knowledge and experience in the specific area of law to give an intelligent opinion and develop a winning strategy,

That strategy should be cost efficient and practical. At the Law Office of Vivien I. Stark, P.C., all efforts are made to resolve your case. However, if your case cannot be settled, we have the experience and knowledge to try it to its conclusion.
