What Attorney Eric C. Cheshire Believes In His Own Words

With nearly 30 years of practice, I have seen just about every family law situation imaginable, and that experience gives me an insight that few lawyers can match. I believe that every client deserves respect, dignity and an advocate who will listen to their wants and needs. 

I set the standards for my clients by making sure they are informed about every single action we take on their behalf. I always remember that we work for our clients, not the other way around, so everything we do here is predicated on making sure decisions are taken with the best interests of our clients in mind. And while we do have a tremendous level of expertise, we also understand that some decisions are best left up to the client, because they are the ones who have to live with the consequences of what happens in court.

What We Do Is Important

Despite the stereotypes you often read and see about family lawyers, the truth is that the best firms in this industry provide a valuable service to people going through massive disruptions in their lives. Whether it is divorce, adoption, domestic violence or paternity, these are issues that can have long-term impact on a family. A caring and dedicated family law firm can help ease the transition after these issues are resolved in a court of law. But even more importantly, a family lawyer can ensure that you emerge from a fractured relationship with peace of mind and your rights protected.
