Milwaukee Family Law & Divorce Attorneys
About Sterling Law Offices
The experienced team of divorce and child custody attorneys at Sterling Law Offices want to make the difficult process of a family law case as painless as possible. When your future and your family are on the line, it's simply not enough for a lawyer to go through the motions. That's why during emotionally draining and complex cases like divorce and child custody, the members of our Milwaukee office are prepared to go above and beyond in order to support you and get the best result possible.
Unlike many law offices, which offer a little of this and a little of that, at Sterling Law Offices we practice exclusively in family law. Our team is made up of accomplished divorce lawyers, certified Collaborative Law practitioners and trained mediators all sharing information and working towards a common goal for the benefit of our clients. We also have several Wisconsin for your convenience.
That singular focus translates into having a deep understanding of all aspects of the law along with a trusted network of professionals including guardians, court officials, appraisers, and therapists. Most importantly, only working in one area of law means every single one of our team is passionate and dedicated individuals who understand better than most what's at stake in a family law case. Cases involving families and children are never easy, and having a group of people who genuinely understand what's at stake can make all the difference.
To choose is to choose to be informed, not left in the dark. You will be walked through and included in every major step of your case. After all, an attorney who's fighting a case without listening to their client isn't fighting for you. Our philosophy is simple: listen to our clients, understand their needs, and go through the process together. The way we see it, clients shouldn't ever feel left out of a case that will decide their future or the future of their family.
Communication is paramount to our success, and involving you in the process does not mean dictating a case to you but to hear your concerns and incorporate your feedback as well. To put it simply, you shouldn't feel suspicious about the people assigned to help you; lawyers and clients should work as allies towards a common goal.
This attitude of transparency extends to our pricing. Our unique, flat-rate system means you know exactly what you're paying in advance without the dread of an unexpected and devastating legal bill. We never charge hourly, so no matter how complex or drawn out your case becomes the amount you pay remains the same. The price you pay includes all communication, research, travel, and time that our attorneys spend working with you. Our goal is to be proud of our work and provide the best possible outcome for our clients, not to nickel-and-dime the people who put their trust in us.
