Individualized Legal Strategy and Approach for Every Case, Every Client

One of the traps that a majority of family lawyers get into is that they start believing every case is the same. They start giving each case the same treatment, and as a result, they get stuck in a cycle of taking on far more cases than they can actually do justice to. With Pinkham & Associates, APLC, our clients have the assurance that they will receive exclusive, personalized attention to their case at every level until it is resolved to its best possible outcome.

The greatest principle that we have abided by for over 25 years is that every single divorce and family law case is different and should be treated as such. Each divorce is unique, each family dynamic is unique, and the children’s needs and desires in each family are unique. There could be issues of domestic violence, which are always very individual. You may have a specific concern with regard to a retirement account or some other property. You may have a case where one or both parties to a divorce owned a piece of property or part of their retirement from before marriage. You may have issues of business ownership or self-employment income, which are always tricky. These are all issues that are going to require detailed discussion and a nuanced approach to resolve.
