We make every reasonable attempt to settle a case once adequate discovery has been exchanged.

However, if the other lawyer or party will not settle the matter fairly, we understand that the point of litigation is to win the arguments in dispute. Our thought process is that we cannot always make the other side be reasonable outside a courtroom, but we can always hold them accountable in a courtroom.

Most family law cases are won or lost before the parties enter the courtroom. Accordingly, from the initial consultation, we are focused on what we need to prove if the matter does not settle. We distinguish ourselves from other firms who see you as a “case” to be filed in court. We recognize that the failure to resolve family disputes pertaining to divorce and litigation as early as possible creates financial and emotional consequences for the participants and their families. However, we also understand that a certain percentage of the cases will go to trial, and our ethos is to out-work the other side when we are required to use a courtroom to obtain a fair result for our clients.

The attorneys at ROOP XANTTOPOULOS BABOUNAKIS & KLAM will bring their experience, empathy and talent to work for the best interests of you and your family. If you would like to request an appointment, please contact our family law firm by calling 703.442.0040, or by sending us an email.
