Contested Divorce, Uncontested Divorce And Family Law
At The Oncale Firm, we represent individuals in contested divorces, uncontested divorces and other family law matters. Oftentimes, our clients are dealing with the legal system for the very first time and are nervous, uncertain and, in some cases even scared of the possible outcomes and ramifications. We pride ourselves on being the calm in the middle of the storm, the guiding light and beacon of hope for our clients.
Statistics show us that most of us, at one time or another, will deal with divorce or some other significant family law issue either directly or through the involvement of a family member. In times of crisis or uncertainty, it is important to have a shoulder to lean on and some place to turn for empathetic, understanding and well-reasoned information and advice. Our goal is to provide each of our clients with that comfort, to know that they are speaking with someone who has empathy for their situation and is willing to invest the time and effort to provide them with the knowledge they need to feel comfortable that they are making the right decisions for themselves and their family.
A Different Kind Of Law Firm
In many ways, The Oncale Firm is a different kind of law firm. Each and every client of the firm will have an initial consultation with our founder, Shane Oncale. Mr. Oncale will speak with you personally about your case and will answer any questions my may have for free as part of an initial consultation. If you decide to retain Mr. Oncale, he will personally speak to you when you call and will handle your case personally. If he refers you to another attorney or staff member in our office, that attorney or staff member will work with you on your case, personally take your calls and answer any questions you might have. You will have a personal relationship with whoever works on your case and you will not just be another number. You will meet our founder and if you are ever unhappy with the service you are receiving, you will have a personal relationship and right to call him for further consultation or involvement.
Goal-Oriented Strategy-Driven Representation
In the handling of divorce and family law cases, we strive to provide a goal-oriented, strategy-driven representation. We respect our clients enough that we want them to be personally involved in their own cases. I know saying that sounds a little odd, but, in many law firms, the client’s involvement in setting the goals and strategies of the case are bypassed and the case becomes more about the ego and desires of the attorney involved in the case than it does about the client. We believe that for any representation to be successful, the client must be actively involved in setting the goals and determining the strategies used to accomplish those goals. This is true from the smallest uncontested divorce case to the most complex high net worth divorce or child custody case. While the goals may be less complex and the strategies much simpler, the concept remains the same. Whatever happens in your divorce or family law case happens to you. It does not happen to me and it does not happen to my law firm. For that reason, you must take a personal stake in your case and be involved in setting the goals and strategies for that case. We will help to you to set those goals and strategies and we will give input as to what goals and strategies are realistic, useful and worth your hard-earned money. However, we will not dictate to you what you must do, what you have to do or what we are going to do. At each step of the way, you will take an active role in your case and the strategies employed to reach our mutually agreed upon goal.
Call us today at 205-313-6429 or contact us by email to put us to the test or to put us to work for you. Initial consultations are always free.
