Effective Family Law Legal Services in Waterford, Connecticut

At the law firm of John C. Valliere, Attorney at Law, in Waterford, Connecticut, I am a family law attorney representing clients facing the prospect of divorce and the issues that come with it. I pride myself on being both a reasonable trial attorney and an effective mediator.

Mediation vs. Trial

Whether the parties in a divorce are able to work together or have a contentious relationship, it is my job to get to the facts. I will assess the case and consult with my client on the ideal strategy, including the options of mediation or trial.

When children are involved, I encourage couples to mediate and reduce any long-term emotional damage to the family. In addition, trial can be an expensive and time-consuming option. Mediation or other alternative dispute resolution models, such as collaborative divorce, can also help establish a stronger financial future and inspire a civil relationship for the divorcing parties.

Accessible and Responsive

At the law firm of John C. Valliere, I know the importance of responding quickly to prospective and existing clients’ needs. A common complaint from my prospective clients is that other lawyers did not return calls in a timely manner, if at all. All calls to my office are usually returned within one business day, most even sooner. I am constantly in communication with my clients and remain accessible whenever possible. Contact me today to schedule a free consultation if this is the type of representation you would like for your family law matter.

Often times, my clients have time constraints that don’t allow them to travel to me. As your lawyer, I will save you that time by coming to you, even making off-site, early evening and weekend appointments. I also serve clients in Windham County along with those in New London County. Meetings can take place in Windham County if that is where you live or work.

Clear and Honest Assessments

At our meeting, I will gather information, assess the case and provide you with a plan of action and possible strategies. I will clearly explain the procedures to follow. From there, we will discuss what will happen in your divorce case regarding child support, child custody and visitation.
