Family law attorneys Paul Roberts and Karen Peabody have joined Price, Postel & Parma (PP&P) law firm.
The firm’s new family law practice includes handling complex liquidation procedures for high net worth assets and focuses on guiding clients in key life events such as marriage contracts, post-verdict disputes, and setting up and amending maintenance and custody decisions for spouses and children .
The expansion of family law alongside estate planning and the firm’s tax practices enables PP&P to provide comprehensive representation regardless of the developments in their clients’ lives.
In addition to the highly technical problems that can arise, family law matters are often further complicated because of the potential for highly controversial litigation.
“Understanding the extent of a lawyer’s responsibility in family law is critical,” said Roberts. “It is family law and the family is to be redefined as a result of this process. As a professional, I see this as an opportunity to preserve and protect, but also to redefine it.
“What I do in my work can have an impact on future generations. This truism has to be remembered every day, ”he said. “My approach is based on getting to know my clients’ needs, giving them an idea of what to expect from the start of a family law matter, keeping clients informed throughout the process and achieving their goals as efficiently as possible.”
