Helping You Navigate Divorce & Family Law Issues

  • Divorce, domestic relations and family law are extremely difficult and brutally competitive for both client and lawyer. Approximately 95% of all divorce cases in Middle Tennessee settle at some point prior to trial. The amount of litigation necessary to get from start to finish, either settlement or trial, varies from case to case depending on the facts and the parties. Thorough discovery of the other parties' financials, separate and marital estate assets is necessary to "level the playing field" before a full and mutual disclosure of assets can be accomplished, which is a necessary precursor to any settlement. Mediation is required by the Tennessee Courts prior to trial, and cases are thoroughly prepared prior to mediation, to maximize settlement potential at mediation, in the event the parties are able to reach settlement. Mr. Simons believes the best approach is to aggressively litigate cases, while also looking for areas of agreement to maximize the potential for settlement, and -- if efforts to settle fail -- to aggressively take the case to trial. In other words, prepare for trial, remain open to settlement.
