Serving Clients Throughout Central New York, Including Oneida, Madison, Herkimer And Lewis Counties
A Family Law Firm Doing What Is Right For You
Attorney Michael Kalil is determined and assertive in doing right by you. Far too often, people assume that divorce must be a full-fledged battle. They spend years of their lives – and thousands or even millions of dollars – fueling a fight over every aspect of the process. And in the end, they are often left with little to show for it.
Michael is aggressive when it is in your best interests. He also believes there can be a better way. He encourages clients to take an “olive branch” approach to divorce and custody issues. This does not mean he will let your rights and interests slip away. On the contrary, he will zealously advocate for you throughout the process. When negotiation proves unsuccessful, he prepares to do what is necessary to present your case at trial to a judge. In many cases, however, the best result comes from strategic collaboration rather than relentless antagonism.
A Family Law Firm Committed To Positive Solutions
Divorce is never a trivial matter. This already difficult period in your life does not need to be further marred by an ugly feud. Michael will help you pursue an amicable resolution and closure, making the process as positive and stress-free as possible.
Michael tailors his legal services to meet your unique circumstances. Not all issues can be resolved through out-of-court means such as negotiation, mediation or collaborative methods. He aims to help you understand how the law has solutions for protecting your future. Sometimes, pursuing collaborative methods will be the most effective way to approach your family law dispute.
At other times, taking your issues before a judge can be the most streamlined process for you to get on with your life. Substance abuse or domestic violence are two factors that can make it difficult to pursue a cooperative approach. In these cases, Michael and his professional legal team are well-equipped to advocate for you in the courtroom.
In addition to family law matters, The Law Offices of Michael N. Kalil handles a wide variety of other legal issues that affect people from all walks and stages of life.
