Washington, DC Divorce Lawyer

washington divorce lawyer-handing over wedding read during divorce proceedingsWhen you are getting a divorce, your Washington, DC divorce lawyer understands that you may be struggling with what kinds of information to divulge. In fact, many people think that for them to get ahead in a divorce or have the best outcome, they need to keep as much information to themselves. After all, it is easier not to get hurt or to come out on top when you play your cards close to your chest, right? This is not necessarily the case when it comes to speaking with your lawyer. When you are proceeding with a divorce, it means opening up to your lawyer from Cohen & Cohen. We care about the outcome of your case and if you do not speak candidly with your lawyer about what happened and what you hope to get out of your divorce, you cannot expect a positive outcome.

 

What makes divorce law different?

With many different civil lawsuits, a person is usually bringing forth a suit that is not personal. Whether it was a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or a contract dispute, this is usually something done with the other party’s insurance agent and it is meant to help you get the compensation you are owed. With divorce litigation, however, this is incredibly personal. You may be fighting for a house you have lived in for 20 years. You might be fighting for the right to raise your children and have physical custody. When marriages sour, the person who was your closest partner is now fighting for these things too. That is why divorce can be so difficult to go through. That is why it is crucial you have a lawyer. 

 

What do I need to disclose to my lawyer?

Plan to disclose anything pertinent to your marriage. If you think there is something that your spouse may use against you during the divorce (such as a mental health diagnosis, a substance abuse issue, etc.), then it is important to come out ahead and disclose this to your lawyer. You do not need to worry that your lawyer is going to air out your personal information in the divorce case or to the public. Your conversations with your lawyer are done in confidence and they will not share what you say unless it involves committing a future crime, preventing the harm or death of someone else, or in the event that your lawyer needs help from other attorneys, in certain circumstances. 

 

What if my spouse tries to use a mental health diagnosis to keep my children away?

It is best to speak openly with your Washington divorce lawyer about any mental health diagnosis you may have. It is easy to want to hide this kind of diagnosis so that you can keep your children close, but this will only hurt you and our reputation in the end. The court will want to know if you have a diagnosed mental health problem and that you have or are actively seeking help so that you can parent appropriately and safely. Your attorney can help ensure you are getting the help you need so that this is not a cause for concern during the divorce proceedings.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
