With the involvement of a knowledgeable and dedicated attorney, you can have confidence that you will achieve a favorable result in your case.

Rather than handing clients off to our firm's support staff, Kathleen handles all important aspects of every case. Our support staff at the Law Office of Kathleen M. Kirchner prepares paperwork and implements the case plan while Attorney-at-Law Kathleen M. Kirchner, Esq. remains in direct contact with you, the client, to make the necessary decisions for the case.

In some cases, the best action may be to immediately proceed to court because the outcome of a family law case is sometimes determined by what the lawyer does in the first 48 hours of the case.

Overall, our philosophy is to determine what is in the best interest of the client, assess their goals, and then take action based on those factors.
