New Orleans Family Law Attorney

Decades of Experience. Knowledgeable Advice.

To succeed as a lawyer, you need more than a working knowledge of the law. It also takes compassion, charisma, and creativity. This is especially true in the context of family law, where each dispute can be fraught with acrimony and betrayal. The most skilled family law attorneys are able to carry themselves with a delicacy and sensitivity that moves both parties towards resolution without adding additional fuel to the fire.

At Chehardy Sherman Williams, our New Orleans family lawyers understand that more is at stake than mere settlements and rulings. We're also working to lay a positive foundation for future interactions. So long as children and property are involved, it is crucial for ex-spouses to be able to maintain a working relationship. Though you may want to "stick it" to your former spouse, it's almost always in everyone's best interests to find a solution that is as mutually beneficial as possible so everyone can "move forward."

Our areas of family law practice include:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody & support
  • Spousal support
  • Division of assets & liabilities
  • Pre and post-nuptial agreements

You May Not Need a Judge!

Perhaps the best reason to choose a lawyer who is skilled in conflict management and resolution is the fact that it may keep you out of the courtroom altogether. Whenever spouses can mutually agree upon issues like custody, child support, and the division of assets, the entire process becomes far less expensive and time-consuming. Though couples can't always find commonality on their own, our family law attorneys have extensive experience as outside mediators.

Whether you're contemplating an "at-fault" or "no-fault" filing, Chehardy Sherman Williams is here to make the journey with you. Centrally located within easy reach of New Orleans, Kenner, and the Northshore, our Greater New Orleans divorce lawyers are just a phone call away.
