AP Family & Divorce Lawyers
Our Family Serving Yours
If you’re starting your research into family lawyers and feel incredibly overwhelmed with the ambiguity and complexity of prices, services, and time – you’re not alone
When it comes to family law, everyone knows their situation is unique to their lives. According to traditional legal services, every client pays the same hourly rate no matter the complexity of the service required. The process is often costly, and many turn to self-representation to save money and time. Without legal training, this can be a pretty risky way to approach such a crucial time in your life. We’ve seen this happen for years, and that’s why our team is here to provide a new look at hiring a lawyer:
