Handling Your Case With Care and Compassion

Paul Panico has represented hundreds of clients in situations just like yours. He has seen the emotional and financial distress that contested divorces bring about. For this reason, he will spend time with you to understand your true legal goals and interests. He will explain to you the options that are available to you.

When possible, attorney Panico will try to help you and your spouse reach an agreement on all issues, including:

  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Child custody
  • Property division

If he can do this, he can help move your case from the contested divorce docket to the uncontested divorce docket. Doing so will cut your costs and lessen the time you need to spend on your divorce. If this option is not available, he will take any and all steps required to reach your goals.

Know What Is Worth Fighting Over

If you are spending a significant amount of money on litigation, you might be on the wrong track. It is important that you take the time to understand your motivations in pursuing a contested divorce. If you find your goals are really vindication, validation or vengeance, then you may find at the end of your divorce that you have taxed yourself emotionally and financially and have very little to show for it.

However, if you have significant interests in matters close to your heart or your livelihood, such as your children, significant assets like a family business or retirement funds, or significant debt, then it is important that you do not compromise. Paul Panico will help you understand when it is time to stand up for something. He will then dig in his heels and fight aggressively for you.
