Edward L. Amaral, Jr., will help you set realistic expectations and determine the best way to proceed. He emphasizes:

  • Gaining a thorough understanding of the facts and nuances of your unique family situation
  • Ensuring that all information reflected in a settlement agreement and, ultimately, in court orders — including your spouse’s assets and financial circumstances — is accurate and complete
  • Pursuit of resolution and closure via the approach best suited to your case, in full view of likely legal costs and your most important priorities (which can include mediation, litigation or a hybrid of both)
  • Dynamic, impeccably prepared advocacy in court when critical disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation or divorce and family law mediation

Founding attorney Edward L. Amaral, Jr., guides our practice based on decades of diverse case experience and real-world perspective on how devastating divorce litigation is for families, both financially and emotionally. We do not encourage escalation of conflict. You can count on us to advise you accordingly if the costs of a particular action are likely to outweigh its benefits for you.
