Some of my fondest memories from spending time with my mom as a child are of watching the show Perry Mason and seeing how he helped people who were in dire circumstances navigate the legal system. Whether I knew it at the time, the seed that would one day grow into a legal career had been planted. My innate passion for aiding others, coupled with an insatiable appetite for learning and reading, would ultimately guide me down the path to becoming an attorney. For me, the choice was not just logical but an instinctive alignment of purpose and calling.
After graduating from the University of South Carolina, I originally decided to forgo law school and started a family. That decision would have lasting effects and, while it delayed the pursuit of my legal career, it would also provide me with the first-hand experience I would later need as I helped people navigate separation and divorce. While my path to becoming an attorney may have included a few detours, it gave me the tools to clearly understand the whirlwind of thoughts and feelings that our clients experience as they try to find their way through the complicated emotions and questions associated with a change that will forever alter the structure of their lives.
When you are navigating a path that you have never taken before, you want someone leading the way who has been there. You’d hire a guide to escort you on a safari, or to the peak of Mt. Everest, right? Why not one to help guide you through divorce as well? While all lawyers possess the technical skills and knowledge needed to help you traverse the legal landscape of divorce, not all of them have walked in those shoes themselves. My knowledge and ability to effectively communicate not just about the legalities, but also about the deeply personal experience of separation and divorce, allows me to build relationships based on trust and understanding with my clients as I serve as their guide through the emotional and legal hazards they may face on their journey.
An experienced family law attorney should possess the power to manage your case within the courtroom, engage in thoughtful and amicable negotiations outside of the courtroom, and have a versatile skill set at their fingertips allowing them to address the full spectrum of situations that may arise in between the two. Together, the attorneys at Sodoma Law York are equipped to navigate the diverse challenges that may lie ahead and steer you toward securing the best outcome for you and your family.
