Our goal is to best meet your goals
At BFL, we approach your case from a holistic point of view. After a comprehensive initial consultation together we will decide what approach is best to meet your goals. Our philosophy is that most cases should settle without litigation. If the matter is suitable, we may recommend collaborative divorce or mediation. These alternatives work best for lower conflict couples, usually are most cost effective methods, and provide a more emotionally satisfying result --particularly when children are involved. We recognize that not all cases can settle, and we are fully prepared to take your matter to court and WIN, if that is path that evolves.
Our goal is to provide you with a cost efficient and effective result
We strive to keep your fees down by having you work with us in a cooperative manner. The more information you give us the better. We encourage you to review our support and equitable distribution schedules, and always strive to be accurate and accountable to your needs.
If you are considering BFL for a consultation, we encourage you to gather information that will make our time together more productive. You may download, print and complete the following forms from our website Initial Consultation Form; Estimated Asset; Budget Form and complete to the best of your ability.
Our goal is to support you and your family throughout
We understand there are many reasons why you may choose to contact us. Whether it is in anticipation of your marriage and you wish a pre-nuptial agreement, or because you may need a modification in a child support order, our goal always is to look at your whole case, treat you with compassion, and support you fully through whatever life situation you are experiencing. Because our attorney, Phyllis Bookspan, approaches her clients from years as an accomplished law professor, and also as a successful entrepreneur and as a yoga teacher, she brings a wealth of skills, understanding, and compassion to each case.
If you may benefit from non-legal supportive services, we have the resources to help you find the right professionals to help you on your journey. No one has to navigate life transitions alone.
