Why Choose Us?
Our goal at McKELL GRAFF, PLLC is to resolve your legal issues at the lowest level of conflict. That means that our door is always open to discussing settlement in our clients cases. We know that long, protracted litigation costs our clients a lot of money, but even more, it is stressful on all the parties and harmful to children. While settlement is always a client’s decision, we believe that trial should generally be reserved for only the most difficult cases where settlement is not possible, such as extreme child abuse with a parent in denial, intractable opposing counsel whose philosophy is to “march to trial” and spend down their clients’ trust accounts, or where a party to the legal matter is severely addicted to substances that affect reasoning, is mentally ill, or cognitively impaired, among other things.
We take a caring and “hands on” approach to our clients’ legal matters. We care about our clients and want to help them achieve their realistic legal goals. We understand that often times a negotiated settlement is better than trial. Most of the time, families know what is best for their family, their children, their property and debts. Sometimes they need help finding solutions. We do that with coaching, family team meeting facilitation, mediation, collaboration, and negotiation, and when all else fails, we go to court and present our clients’ cases as the skilled, experienced, and articulate professionals we are. We are not “one trick ponies” who try to fit every case into a litigation model. We offer a variety of resolution tools and bring our varied skill sets to resolving our clients’ legal issues. We love what we do!
