Our Philosophy

At DeWitt Law, PLLC, we’re sensitive to the personal nature of family law. Our attorneys will resolve your case in a manner that best serves your interests as well as the interests of your family. Our attorneys and staff will work closely with you to ensure that your needs are met.

While clients in all areas of law are experiencing stress and anxiety about their case, family law can be particularly emotional. Our family law attorneys will exercise sensitivity to your particular situation, and will take the time to get to know you and your specific needs. We are responsive to our clients’ requests for communication.

Many clients are surprised to learn that we only advise going before a Judge when it is absolutely necessary. When you turn to litigation to resolve your disputes, you give all the decision-making power to the Judge, asking them to make life-impacting decisions regarding your family in a limited amount of time and based on imperfect information. We will attempt to negotiate a settlement with opposing counsel, and if we are unable to do so we will likely recommend hiring a professional mediator, all in the interest of allowing our clients to keep control over the final resolution of their cases. Settling cases also greatly reduces the cost of the representation.

But not all cases are appropriate for settlement, and rest assured, when a case needs to be argued before the judge, our family law attorneys have over two decades of combined experience in the courtroom.
