Everyone who is divorcing brings his or her individual strengths and weaknesses to the case. Your education, work experience, family background and life experiences, as well as your age, health and financial circumstances, all will shape your lawyer’s strategy.
In your first meeting, your lawyer should interview you to assess how well you will be able to handle day to day life, emotionally, mentally, and even financially, while the divorce proceeding continues.
Far too many attorneys fail to make this assessment so cases move forward without the help of advocates, psychologists, divorce counselors or other professionals and family members – people who could help them cope during the divorce action.
The physical and emotional stress inherent in every divorce affects everyone differently, and it is important that your lawyer pace the case accordingly.
For more than 40 years, Peter J. Fiorella, Jr. & Associates has successfully helped our clients navigate the complexities of divorce, and we are sensitive to the wide array of emotions divorce can bring.

Defeats the enemy
Without doing battle,
Captures the city
Without laying siege,
Overthrows the enemy state
Without protracted war.
