One Divorce. One Attorney.
Divorce doesn’t have to be adversarial. You can choose not to fight. You can choose to work together to amicably end your marriage. You can choose to reach a more efficient and relatively quick settlement. You can choose to avoid a court appearance.
The latest trend in Family Law, with regard to divorce, is the Single Attorney Solution. Divorcing couples our choosing the path of least resistance and deciding to work together to end their marriage. By choosing a resolution with little to no conflict, they are able to maintain a sense of dignity and balance that is often lost during a traditional conflict-filled divorce.
A Single Attorney Solution Can Be Much Easier
Some divorces are amicable. Some divorces are not. If you and your (soon to be ex) spouse are on the amicable side of your divorce, a single attorney solution may be right for you.
If you are comfortable working together to reach the terms of your divorce and you both agree on the distribution of your assets, a Single Attorney Solution can be a viable solution.
While a Single Attorney Solution may not work for everyone, it does work for many couples. If it’s a simple matter of having someone help navigate the legal paperwork, a Single Attorney Solution is an excellent choice.
Bound by Ethics
While a Single Attorney Solution is usually more efficient and often results in a relatively quick settlement, there are a few important issues to note.

These Rules prohibit the simultaneous representation of both parties in a legal matter. This means that The Law Office of Keith A. Singer is bound by law to only represent one of the parties; the other party must represent themselves. The unrepresented party is encouraged, but not required, to retain independent counsel at any, or every, stage of the process.
With this in mind, it is important to state that The Law Office of Keith A. Singer has ethically and successfully served many families and couples in the capacity of a Single Attorney Solution.
A Single Attorney Solution is most successful in cases where the parties are on reasonably good terms and agree on most of the important issues. Where they want to reach a expeditious resolution, but they are not comfortable with or are unknowledgeable about the legal process.
