Choosing to work with a divorce lawyer at Coley Hennessy Cassis means you want an advocate who is committed to achieving a favorable outcome in a reasonable time frame, not an all-or-nothing lawyer who puts you on a path to costly court litigation.
“Many clients just want someone to listen to them,” notes Rose-Marie Cassis, a partner in the law offices of Coley Hennessy Cassis. “So the first thing we do is listen. It is very important to let the client talk.”
“Much of the stress the client feels comes from lack of knowledge,” adds Shaun Hennessy, the other partner in the law offices of Coley Hennessy Cassis. “They may also have misconceptions about how the law applies to their case. We correct those impressions, fill the information gaps and then go to work for the client.”
For best results, it is vital that you share with your lawyer all pertinent information and documentation. “To protect your assets, we need to know everything about your financial situation, not just before you decided to separate, but also after you separated,” explains Ms. Cassis. “Your former spouse is entitled to full disclosure and any attempt to hide information is counterproductive in the long run.”
