FAQ: Is The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. the right law firm for me?

    Choosing the right divorce attorney is crucial for your peace of mind and the successful outcome of your case. At The Glennon Law Firm, P.C., we believe that a client must feel comfortable with their divorce attorney, and a certain level of trust must be present.

Our team members are dedicated to building a strong attorney-client relationship and satisfying these requirements.
  • How can I determine if The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. is not the right fit for me and for my divorce case?

    Admittedly, we’re not be the right fit for everyone. Different firms are built to respond efficiently to different types of cases. For example, our firm is not the best choice for people who’s main issue in the divorce will be child custody; or if the parties are primarily arguing over debt. Although our team members can and do handle child custody issues as part of divorces, we are not built to argue over heated child disputes or the need to run to Court for orders of protection. Similarly, we do address debt distribution as part of any divorce, but our primary focus is on the issues most commonly found with gray divorces, divorces among licensed professionals, and business owners, or those with assets in dispute over distribution. That is what we are built to handle most efficiently.

    There is no one-size-fits-all divorce firm, and it is essential to find the one that is right for your situation. If your case aligns with our areas of expertise and you feel comfortable with our team members, then The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. may be the right choice for you.
