Morris County Divorce. From Distressed to De-Stressed.
Divorce is difficult enough. Your attorneys shouldn’t make it worse. At Jacobs Berger, we help take you from distressed to de-stressed both during the divorce process and after.
Going through a divorce or family law matter can be overwhelming and while we can’t wave a magic wand and eliminate all of your worries, we can and do control aspects of the process to allow our clients to focus on what really matters. We can’t control everything, but we can control our client’s experience with us.
We know life brings a ton of competing priorities (family, career, community, friends), and divorce just adds to the mix. Our practical, goal-oriented advice is designed to weigh options and plan for long-term sustainable success.
The De-Stress Divorce Doctrine:The Jacobs Berger Approach
Everyone on the JB team understands the legal process creates complex dilemmas that require creative, multi-dimensional solutions. We have developed five principles that are the underpinnings of our attorney-client relationship. These commitments ensure that you won’t be left in the dark. We will find the time to TALK to you, answer your emails and keep you updated. We also promise to do so in a way that is digestible, understandable, and which gives you actual answers to your real questions. We also promise not to leave you the minute the divorce is over, instead choosing to help you find resources before and after the ink is dry so that you can make sure your life, not your divorce, is your top priority.
