A speedy consultation with a lawyer is necessary after arrest, a call from the police for questioning, in the face of a suspicion that a crime may have been committed, or in the case that you may be suspected of one. Even an innocent person needs the help of a criminal defense attorney to establish their innocence and to ensure that their rights are protected. It is never a good idea to discuss conduct which may constitute a criminal offense with the police, with persons who may be witnesses, or may be accused along with you, or even with family members. You should speak only to counsel.
We understand the financial and emotional complexity and sensitivity of family law proceedings for separating adults and for their children, both in traditional and non-traditional families. Parties to a divorce or other family crisis are frequently called upon to make some of the most important financial and parenting decisions of their lives, while under significant stress. We work hard to respect and to address our clients’ emotional situations, while providing a commonsense framework for a plan to move forward. We want to help resolve the issues as economically and efficiently as possible, so that client and children can move on, comfortable that the appropriate details are in place.
We offer four approaches to the divorce process. Three of them involve attempts to resolve the issues and present the court with an agreement which can become part of a decree. The fourth is litigation, where the parties, unable to resolve their dispute, present some or all of the issues to a judge for resolution.
Our firm has handled countless cases of injury, arising from employment, accident, or sexual misconduct, whether the damage be psychological or physical.

We work with the clients’ medical providers and experts as appropriate to assemble evidence of the extent of the damage, and future medical or rehabilitation costs. We accept cases where we believe the chances of recovery are good, and help our clients to take a realistic approach to resolving them. We are experienced at trial, and at mediation and negotiation. Ms. Flournoy has tried over 150 civil and criminal jury cases.
