Fortunately, most clients have at least some understanding that compromise and negotiation are at the heart of the vast majority of ?winning? family law situations. Both parties are usually the losers in litigation.

Many people going through a divorce feel that they need an aggressive attorney to represent them, or the outcome will end up being unfair to them.
