For the past 16 years, Sandra Lilley has assisted families and individuals with some of the most difficult family law decisions they have ever had to face, and she has done so, in both transactional and trial settings, with respect and diligence.
A trusted advisor, Sandra works with her clients to ensure that they are fully informed about the process, strategy, and all potential options, as they proceed with life-changing and life-challenging circumstances. She specializes in matters related to divorce proceedings and settlements, child support, guardianship for minors, parental responsibilities, complex property and debt division, spousal maintenance, step-parent adoption, grand-parent requests, visitation, and post-divorce issues. She is particularly adept at de-mystifying the litigation process and reducing the stress attendant to such highly charged and difficult situations.
While Sandra is skillful and diligent in the courtroom, she also recognizes that a court-imposed solution is not always the easiest or best solution for the people involved. She understands well that alternative measures, such as arbitration and mediation, are often preferable to trial, and proactively negotiates detailed and extensive settlement agreements on behalf of her clients. Sandra is a highly respected and trusted family lawyer.
