Alison Lebeck Garcia
I decided to become an attorney when I was in pre-school. Listening to my father’s war stories and excitements of being a small-town general practitioner, city attorney and legislator were always the interesting topics of dinner conversation at our house. The decision to become a family lawyer came later however, when I saw my mother go through a contested divorce, her attorney treated her legal representation like casual dating, and I learned first hand that the quality of one’s attorney can be fundamental to the outcome in any legal matter. As a child of divorce and divorcee myself, I can truly say I understand what my clients are going through and know they are looking for more than a lawyer or his paralegal to handle the legal paperwork, and am committed to preserving a positive co-parenting relationship for my clients when litigation is concluded.
I take pride in being a thorough attorney who will explain long-term ratifications of all aspects of a divorce, custody arrangement or adoption including property division, custody, maintenance and support. I advise my clients based not only on the law, but also their individual circumstances, long-term needs or goals, financial concerns, and moral or family commitments. I identify myself not only as an attorney, but also a counselor and advocate. I understand that many of my clients have not been involved in litigation before, that I might be their first and only lawyer, that the situation bringing them to my office involves their entire family and is therefore the most important aspect of their life. I know they are not looking just for legal representation but also a counselor to guide them through what can be one of life’s low points.
Because I realize emergencies don’t usually come up between 9 and 5, I ensure all my clients have my personal cell phone number so I am available in a crisis. Because I realize my clients hired an attorney and not a paralegal, I return all my own calls and prepare the majority of pleadings, orders and other legal documents. Because I know the process can be confusing and intimidating, I work to ensure my clients never feel lost, bewildered or alone. Because I have been there and know it is extremely difficult, I am sympathetic and patient with my clients while remaining objective, honest and unemotional so I can help them make important decisions.
I absolutely enjoy representing my clients in all their family law matters and hope I can be of assistance to you too. Whether you think you qualify for my no-contest divorce or need representation in a more complex family law matter, call today to schedule your complimentary consultation and know I will handle your case as I would my own.
