Verdicts/Settlements

  • The concept of Verdicts and Settlements doesn't really apply in Family Law. I can say that Feinberg & Waller has represented a wide range of individuals, including highly recognizable celebrities, and all our clients receive the same exacting attention to detail, compassion and the the professionalism and competence one comes to expect from a law firm of our caliber. In every case, a sucessful outcome is when we can assist our clients through this difficult process in an emotionally and finacially stable way. , 2019
