The law firm's philosophy for handling a Grandparent Rights matter is straight forward. At Fellows & Quenzer, we strive to complete your case as economically as possible while seeking to accomplish all of your case goals preferably through a settlement and when necessary through a trial with the Judge. Our goal is the same for each client in a Grandparents rights case, to guide the client through the process as inexpensively and efficiently as possible, minimizing the emotional impact while standing firm for the legally recognized rights of our clients and to work tirelessly to make certain the grandchildren are protected.
In the beginning of each client's matter, we attempt to maintain a cordial, professional working relationship with the other side in your case. We are polite yet firm in representing our client's wishes. In most cases, even ones where there has been a great deal of conflict, we first try to settle the case early in the matter on terms benefitting our client. We make an offer to settle each case early in the matter to try to minimize the potential financial cost of the case. If we cannot reach a reasonable agreement early in the case, we move to step two and prepare to fight for you at trial. We continue to try to settle the case up to the moment of trial, but will not waste your money on a futile effort to settle when the sides are too far apart and it is unjust for our client to give in to the nonsensical demands of the other side. We prepare for trial to place our client in the best possible position for the Court to decide the terms of custody of the grandchildren along the lines wished for by our client.
