Experienced Help Through Tough Times

Family law is emotionally difficult by its nature. Divorce, child custody disputes and related issues challenge us in a way that is deeply personal and often painful.

Still, while you are trying to resolve these issues, you are called upon to defend your rights and make decisions that will have lasting effects on your finances and your relationship with your children. It's very important to have help from a lawyer who can advise you on your legal options, watch out for your interests and represent you in negotiations or in court. Since a divorce changes your family relationships and long-term plans, you may need to revise your estate plan when you are resolving family law issues. A family law attorney who also works in estate planning can help you update your will and other documents to protect your finances, your family and your legacy.

At the Pensacola, Florida, law office of Christine Sue Cook, LLC, we provide experienced legal services for men and women in family law and estate planning. We help our clients resolve their issues in ways that prepare them for better futures.

Trained In Collaborative Law

Christine is trained in collaborative law, an approach to dispute resolution that emphasizes common ground and working toward mutually agreeable settlements. We use mediation and other techniques to reduce the negative emotions inherent in family law and reach better results for our clients and their children.

Collaborative law is not the right approach for every client, however. When the best results can be found only through more aggressive means, we have the skill to argue forcefully and effectively on behalf of our clients.
