Divorce Attorneys Guiding You To A Better Future

Most people have known someone who has been through a divorce, or someone who is contemplating divorce. Emotions tend to run high along with stress levels. When your future is changing, it can feel like it is out of your control. But, an experienced attorney can help you understand the process and regain the control you may feel was lost.

Clients contact Butler, Thiessen & Metzinger, Inc. & Associates, Inc. because we focus on getting results in family law cases.

Protecting Your Rights

We believe in the rights of every person and seek the best possible result for each and every client. We advise and represent people from all backgrounds and income levels, including same sex couples and individuals.

Often we are contacted because a client is seeking or is disputing custody of minor children, needs assistance with determining child or spousal support or has questions about mediation or alternatives to a court battle to resolve their issues. Regardless of the reason you seek our legal assistance, we are here to focus on your goals and what we can do to help you achieve them.

Moving Your Case Forward

As a firm with more than 30 years of experience, we know how to keep a case moving forward. We view every case globally and work toward an efficient and cost-effective resolution for each of our clients. We are comfortable with courtroom alternatives including mediation and collaborative law.

We also have extensive experience in divorce litigation involving high-asset couples. We work with experts to settle disputes and meet our clients’ goals related to custody, visitation, property appraisals, valuation of businesses, and discovering hidden or undisclosed streams of income.

We will bring in any expert necessary to move your case forward to your goals. If your goal is to win spousal support, we will work toward that goal. As a firm that has handled several hundred cases, we know the necessary steps to get from A to Z.
