Looking out for you
Maureen Toomey, Family Law Attorney
Serving Whatcom County
It can sometimes feel like you are drowning when going through a family crisis.
At the same time, you may have to navigate the often confusing legal system. We
will be looking out for you, as a person and as a client, throughout this process.
Our goal is to develop an agreement or negotiate a settlement. Theses tools
are often more efficient and cost-effective than traditional adversarial approaches.
However, sometimes you will need to go to court to respond to another party's filed documents or to ask specifically for what you want. There may be issues that will take longer to resolve. The bottom line is to avoid a trial if you can; litigation is very expensive and outcomes can be unpredictable when decisions are left up to a judge.
At Toomey Law, we look out for you, focusing on your unique situation and your
family's needs. We allow for flexibility and options to lower costs, and find creative
legal solutions to address your problems. We cannot promise the exact outcomes you want, no attorney can, but we will look out for your best interests and make sure that you get through a difficult time with support and compassion.
