Michael B.

Ms. Leigh Kretzschmar was my attorney of choice for the dissolution of my domestic partner after interviewing 4 other possibilities. I found her very professional. Ms. Kretzschmar listened carefully to my very complicated situation, all questions, and my concerns. 
Leigh returned my calls and emails promptly with as much info/ detail as I needed.  She also sent recaps of our discussions and reported meetings she had with other attorneys (of which there were many) and court-related info. to me. Ms. Kretzschmar was very respectful of my input and suggestions regarding this case and I felt very confident she had my best interest in mind. I would recommend Ms. Kretzschmar to anyone considering legal representation or advice.

Common Mistakes

Because divorce can be an emotional, difficult and uncomfortable transition, many people make mistakes which affect their rights.  Avoiding such mistakes is imperative to a successful outcome.  

Two of the most common mistakes people make are:

Choosing What Facts NOT to Tell Your Attorney. Clients often hesitate to tell their attorney facts the client believes will be harmful to his or her case.  Sometimes, these facts are not as harmful to the client as the client had feared; other times, the facts are not legally relevant and will not be considered by the court.  It is essential that your attorney have all the available information available so she can more effectively represent you.  The bottom line is that Leigh A. Kretzschmar maintains a strict confidentiality policy based on attorney-client privilege, allowing you to talk freely so that she can completely assess, prepare your case for hearing, settlement or trial, minimizing delicate areas and emphasizing the strengths of your case.

Waiting Until the Last Minute to Consult with An Attorney. Scheduling a consultation with an attorney as soon as you think you MIGHT need an attorney is critical to the successful resolution of your legal matter.  While you have no obligation to hire the attorney, Leigh A. Kretzschmar will suggest alternatives to litigation to help you resolve your legal disputes in a cost-effective manner.  For less complicated and uncontested family law matters, these alternatives include mediation or self-help law books.
