Effective family lawyers that solve your problems, not add to them.
Expect our Attorneys to outperform on all family law matters; divorce, property, child custody and support issues.
- You may have been served with divorce papers.
- Your former spouse may not be complying with a visitation order.
- You may have lost your job, making support payments impossible to meet.
These challenges and others are stressful enough. The attorneys at Hammers Baltazar are experienced, effective and ready to help families undergoing change. They will give you a clear picture of your situation and start you moving towards your goals.
From a simple mediation to a complex, high net worth trial– we work in the most effective way possible.
Our Lawyers are committed to solving family problems. We know that divorce is often too expensive, too lengthy and too limited by the constraints of a traditional family law practice. We help you select the most effective solution; a collaborative settlement, a negotiated mediation, or an assertive trial strategy that protects you and your children.
“We mark our success in many ways, one of the most gratifying is that we settle 85% of our cases without going to trial. Another is that over 75% of our new business is referred to us by satisfied clients and former opposing counsel.”
-Barbara Hammers, Senior Litigation Partner
