Depending on the issues involved in your case, we may be able to provide legal services in one of three ways

  1. Full Representation: The law firm takes full responsibility for representing your case, preparing and filing the necessary documents, maintaining the court record, communicating between the parties and other interested persons at court and elsewhere, negotiating settlement where appropriate, and appearances at court.
  2. Limited Representation:  This is permitted in family court.  Mrs. Zawtocki and the client come to an agreement as to what specific appearances will be made in court, at a scheduled mediation, or on a specific issue.  For example, the client may want to handle all matters regarding child support and property but have Mrs. Zawtocki appear for the sole purpose of parenting time and legal decision making (custody).
  3. Consultation and documentation preparation only:  The client remains their own representative in their case with the court.  When help is needed, the client schedules an appointment for review of documents, preparation of necessary documents, and advice on what is needed next.
