Family Lawyer | Representing Families in Rochester, NY
At Lacy Katzen, our Rochester family lawyers are committed to all phases of our clients’ interests—not just legal and financial, but personal, as well. We serve our clients not only by applying our procedural and substantive knowledge of the law, but also by providing our empathy and understanding of both the difficult personal circumstances faced by our clients and the unfamiliar legal environment into which they’ve been thrust. This perspective has been formed over many decades of experience handling these sensitive matters and is something that we feel is unique to our representation of our clients in these matters.
Our family law attorneys understand that “one size does not fit all” in family law matters. There are times that require compromise and cooperation, and there are times that require accountability and aggressive advocacy. To be capable of providing only one approach to the exclusion of the other unnecessarily limits potential opportunities to secure an appropriate conclusion. We provide both. Nowhere is total commitment more important to us than in the area of family law.
