With proven dedication and a high level of care for each client, they work tirelessly to find the best solutions for clients. “We focus exclusively on the resolution of complex divorce and family law cases, whether resolved through settlement, the litigation process, trial, mediation, the collaborative process, or the appellate process,” says John, president of FCLC Group. “We understand every family has a distinct set of needs, and we work together as a team.”
