Divorce is stressful. How you manage that stress and the emotions associated with it matters. Managing your emotions is important. If left unchecked, emotional reactions have the capacity to significantly undermine your case.
Even the healthiest people often behave differently under the stresses of a divorce.

With your authorization, our attorneys and your therapist will confer to assist you will the ups and downs of a divorce case. Therapists can also assist in preparing you for a custody evaluation.
The worst possible situation is when an attorney “over identifies” with his or her client. Put another way, they “step into their client’s skin.” If your attorney becomes enmeshed in your emotions, they are no more effective and objective in representing you than you would be yourself. The Law Center P.C. ‘s managing attorney, Robert Wareham, is known to counsel his clients, “If I get emotionally involved in your case, fire me.” You want calm, reasoned and experienced counsel during these times when your feelings and emotions are potentially on edge. Experience and confidence allow our attorneys to manage your case without resorting to emotions.

The attorneys at The Law Center P.C. address the whole person.
