FAMILY LAW

Child Custody • Child Support • Post Separation Support • Alimony • Equitable Distribution

Family law cases can present an enormous challenge. The law, both statutory and case law, is complex and constantly evolving. Emotions cloud both parties’ perceptions and recollections, making an accurate understanding of the facts of a particular case difficult.

There’s what happened, then there’s the story about what happened.

Separated couples usually have strongly held and greatly different recollections and opinions about how and why their relationship ended. Quality representation in family law matters requires sound legal judgment, which can only be obtained through experience.

Our approach to these cases comes down to this: 1) Identify the best realistic outcome, 2) Develop a plan to accomplish that outcome as efficiently as possible, and 3) Accomplish these goals with as little collateral damage as possible. The future of your family, your relationships and your pocketbook depend on it. We never underestimate the value of alternative dispute processes, especially mediation, in accomplishing your goals.

Since 1981, the primary focus of our practice has been family law. This includes child custody, child support, post separation support, alimony, and equitable distribution.

The practice of family law presents a unique challenge to lawyers. It requires not only a considerable amount of technical legal knowledge in a complex field of law, but a considerable level of good old fashioned “people skills” as well. A family lawyer must possess the capacity to empathize with his or her client (i.e. listen to the client’s story) while maintaining his or her professional objectivity. The term “Attorney and Counselor at Law” truly applies.

Years ago, Bill Rogers encountered a former client one Sunday afternoon in the checkout lane at the grocery store.

“I had been her lawyer in a divorce case about 15 years before. She said that I had told her something that she had always remembered and appreciated. I assumed it must have been some brilliant legal advice, but it wasn’t. It was this:

‘You are going to live through this mess, and everything is going to be OK.’

Handling the legal aspect of a case is why people seek out a lawyer. But there is so much more in Family law. Since that day at the grocery store, I’ve never forgotten that.”

He has represented me in both a divorce and in my business and has been able to overcome many challenges and obstacles to my satisfaction.”

“His advice regarding the law and how to negotiate with the opposing party was clear and effective, and Bill listened to my daughter’s desires and was understanding as to the direction she wanted to take things – and then provided his thoughts and suggestions. I would not hesitate to recommend Bill Rogers to anyone.”

“I have been very fortunate to have Bill Rogers as my attorney. Mr. Rogers is extremely professional, knowledgeable, assertive, and tactful. His staff was incredibly skilled and efficient. It made me feel comfortable and confident knowing that I was surrounded by friends. I am extremely grateful for all he has done for me.”

“During difficult and uncertain times, Bill navigated our family with confidence and concern. I feel that our family was a top concern for Bill; at every turn he considered all aspects and guided us appropriately. Bill’s professionalism and high moral conduct in court kept my family looking forward to the positive conclusion he provided.”
