Practice Philosophy

At Graser Smith, PLLC we know families are the most important part of our clients’ lives.  Because of this centrality, the decisions people must make when facing family distress should not be made without experienced legal guidance from a family law attorney.  Reasoned, thoughtful decisions concerning children, finances, and the future can only be made after reviewing personal circumstances from all angles; this requires a thorough, comprehensive consideration of likely legal consequences.  In providing this guidance, we strive to establish high-quality working relationships with our clients to empower them with the confidence to make informed decisions.

We operate with the focus that for the majority of cases, settlement can be reached amicably and without costly litigation, thus minimizing court intervention.  By focusing on the long-term well-being of our clients and their children, we guide our clients through the confusing and overwhelming family law maze.  With our attorneys extensive experience, training and continued legal education in both Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and collaborative law, we remain committed to the belief that most couples can dissolve their marriages and reach effective family resolutions without court intervention.

When presenting a client’s case in settlement discussions or in trial, we ensure our client’s goals are consistently emphasized throughout the process.

We also recognize that being a family law firm means that we are responsible for guiding our clients through what is often an extremely stressful and uncertain time. As such, we work to respond quickly and conscientiously to our client’s developing legal needs, making client calls a priority.

We believe that each client deserves to have an experienced legal advocate to advise and to problem-solve, all while respecting and addressing the emotions, unique family dynamics, and inherent conflict that accompanies domestic controversy.
