Andover Divorce Lawyer, Born and Raised
We find a team approach to litigation strategy provides the best results. However, each member’s unique insights and experiences add to our depth of knowledge. Attorney Turco, for instance, lived his entire childhood in Andover. He played Andover team sports, worked jobs around Andover as a teenager, and had friends across town who went to both the public and private schools in the Andover area. His dad still lives in town, so Attorney Turco is regularly there to visit friends and family in addition to performing his duties as an Andover divorce lawyer. In his words, “Serving the Andover community is really an honor for me, given the community’s significance in my life. As a child, I did not expect I’d be an Andover Divorce Lawyer, but here we are, and it’s a pleasure serving clients there.”
Newburyport Divorce Lawyer, Living and Working in Town
There’s also something to be said for professionally serving the community in which you live. We pride ourselves in delivering excellence while maintaining civility; there is perhaps some additional incentive when living in Newburyport and also being a Newburyport Divorce Lawyer. “Newburyport is a small town,” says Attorney Turco, “but it’s a wonderful town and surrounding community. We’re lucky to be here, but, admittedly, going through a divorce in small town like Newburyport has its challenges. We’re fortunate to have served so many people here and helped so many families in the Greater Newburyport area move their lives forward.”
Divorce and Family Law Lawyer Testimonials
As you might have gathered from reviewing our competition, there aren’t too many positive divorce lawyer or family law attorney online reviews out there. All the more reason to consider what our own clients have to say about our work. Yes, we have great days in court and find satisfaction in delivering great results; hearing it from our clients is the best, however. Here’s just a sampling of our client testimonials:
Effectively Taking Over a Complicated Case…Two Weeks Before Trial
I’m speechless at this point in my partnership with Turco Legal. I spent 2.5+ years with previous counsel that made me feel unstable, hopeless, uninformed and just plain disappointed whether walking out of court or simply within an email exchange. I had it and decided to inquire with Turco Legal which was pretty much the best move I ever made in my case. My initial meeting with Damien made me feel confident 3 minutes into the consultation. He is honest, up front and makes you feel like a partner not a client.
I was teamed with Kristin Sherman and Brianna Rowley for my case. They had 10 days to prepare for my trial date and jumped in feet first. These two are a dynamic duo and absolutely amazing! I was in awe at the work they did in such a small window of time. This group is amazing and I would recommend them until I was blue in the face! They way they made me and my family feel on trial day was nothing short of awesome. Brianna and Kristin has us laughing and light hearted in tandem with prep and emotional support during trial day.
Effectively Managing Complicated Custody Issues
If there is anyone looking for legal representation for the purpose of gaining legal advocacy in a divorce, I could not recommend more the legal team at Turco legal. My divorce was very complicated because it involved complex parenting challenges and issues that were harming our children and preventing them from moving on to thrive. My need for legal advocacy was because I wanted to protect my children. The case was intensely complicated and Turco legal handled it gracefully and with compassion. These things are not the most important when a case is presented in front of a judge but they are important in the private meetings and pretrial conferences. What continues to amaze me is that in court they advocated with logic and knowledge and a complete competency. I hope for anyone suffering through divorce that they have the kind of representation that Turco legal offers.John Dubus
Complex Financial Expertise
Had a consult with Damian, Brianna joined us. I have been in a very messy long complex divorce matter for almost eight years now. Multiple assets. I wish I had met with this firm from the very beginning. They are extremely qualified. Damian really took his time in the consult, there was no rush, asked all the right questions, and having a second attorney sit in on the consult was also a really smart idea. His follow up in regards to answering my questions afterwards was more than thorough. An extremely qualified group of attorneys. I highly recommend.Mercedes
Our Areas of Expertise
Our attorneys are all career-long divorce and family law practitioners. Each has unique depth of knowledge with more specialized issues. Whether we leverage our expertise in complex financial cases, high net worth cases, or challenging custody and parenting matters, we are well positioned to perform.
Complex Financial and High Net Worth Divorce
While there are financial issues in every divorce, cases presenting financial complexity and high value assets require expert assessment and advocacy. Not every divorce lawyer handles cases of this nature, and for good reason. These cases generally require advanced asset and income identification, asset and liability valuation, and determination of earning ability and availability for the purpose of income imputation and attribution. The utilization of forensic accountants, financial investigators, and vocational experts is generally considered in the development of our case strategy and discovery blueprint. The objective, ultimately, is to resolve the case in a fair, reasonable, and efficient manner, either by settlement or at trial, while maximizing our likelihood of success.
Complex Child Custody and Parenting Issues
It only takes one parent to create major child custody and parenting issues. That behavior can unfortunately result in a high conflict and complex custody case. Many of our cases involve the parenting implications of substance abuse, mental illness, personality disorders, parental alienation, and neglect. If you have these issues in your case, it’s important to have a lawyer who utilizes parenting and mental heath experts, psychological evaluations, drug or alcohol testing and the appointments of Guardian Ad Litems and parenting coordinators. When we take on a complex child custody case, we architect case strategy in collaboration with the client with the objective of delivering a safe, stable, and carefully thought-out parenting plan in the child’s best interest.
Finding the Right Family Law Attorney for You
You want to hire an family law attorney you can trust. A divorce lawyer who can help you when what matters most is on the line. The subject matter is stressful. The process is also stressful. And, while you acknowledge you would benefit from professional help, for the most part, you don’t see your attorney in action before making the hiring decision. Where do you start? Do you ask friends? Do you Google “divorce lawyer near me” or “Andover divorce lawyer” or the like? It can be overwhelming to search through the potential results for “Andover divorce lawyer” to find one you can trust, and that’s completely normal.
Consider the Objective Indicators
You want an attorney who handles primarily divorce and family law cases, has adequate experience with a variety of issues, and with whom you’ll be able to develop an effective working relationship. Since you can’t really take the lawyer for a test drive, consider other credibility indicators. For instance, online reviews are generally outside the control of the lawyer; read up on your prospects and see what their past clients have to say. Check out their website and read up on their staff to assess whether they seem to have the requisite knowledge to effectively handle your divorce or family law case. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, meet with your potential lawyer, either by phone or in person, to decide if it’s a good fit.
