"I felt from the moment I met her she was strong and would fight hard. I could not be happier with my outcome after trial. She quickly understood my situation, and made every effort to keep my bill down yet left no stone unturned". If your kids are important to you, if your case is important, then you need someone who really has your back, she will not let you down.

Channe Cgallagher ColesChanne Gallagher Coles understands the struggles which face divorced parents, especially those confronted with the challenge of raising a child on their own while struggling financially.

How Attorney Fees Work with Divorce, Child Support, and Child Custody Cases

We know the challenges you face because we see it with our clients every day.  Finding the funds necessary to retain an attorney is a common source of anxiety. At the same time, we also know that not having an attorney can have truly negative life-altering economic consequences, particularly in divorce. 

Without a skilled advocate to guide you, much of the process and the law remains invisible. You probably know you need a family law attorney, but also that this takes an investment that won't pay off right away. How do you get an attorney retained and paid through to the conclusion of the proceedings?

We can help navigate the hurdles of requesting and obtaining fee awards from the courts or work with you on an unbundled or flat rate fee that works with your budget.  This is part of what we cover in our initial, free consultation so you will know what to expect and different ways to cover the costs.
