Marital and Family Law

Silvia Leeper is the lead attorney in the firm in the marital and family law field. Silvia has over 20 years of experience in this area of law. Silvia handles all types of family law matters to include:

  • Divorce

  • Paternity
  • Dependency
  • Guardianships

Marital and Family Law can be an area of practice full of joy and heartache. The joy comes from adoptions that result in the creation of new families. The heartache comes from the loss of a marriage, a dispute over assets or child support, or the removal of a child from a home. These later type of cases often result in protracted and heated litigation that does not serve the interests of husband, wife or children. The only victors in unnecessary marital fights are the attorneys whose fees rise with the temper of their client.

At Leeper & Leeper, we are committed to handling these very difficult and painful cases in a responsible manner that focuses on the life still to be lived rather than the perceived hurts/wrongs that occurred in the past. This does not mean we will not pursue every right our clients possess and ensure that a fair and just outcome is achieved. To the contrary, we will move to protect our client and their rights at every corner. We simply want to make sure our clients have the means and ability to move on with their life after the litigation dust has settled. This includes not only the financial means, but also the emotional means as well.

  What to look for in a Marital Attorney

Your attorney should be empathetic to your pain, but not take advantage of your emotional hurt or anger to encourage unnecessary litigation which will only serve to drive up the fees and costs you will pay. Measure their recommended advice against common sense and the idea that this case will be over one day and you will have to live with the outcome. Time heals wounds; believe that and you will make better decisions today that you can live with tomorrow.
