When Franklin divorce attorney Brandon W. Lippman was in law school, he worked as a legal intern for the 8th Judicial Circuit Court system, where he originally wanted to become a prosecutor.
After shadowing numerous judges and attorneys while learning the ins and outs of the courtroom, Mr. Lippman developed a particular passion for family law.
“I would see families being torn apart and children having to witness these life-altering events,” Mr. Lippman said. “To me, divorce is not just a typical contract or transaction, it is someone’s life, not only the lives of the husband and wife, but the lives of the children involved.
“My goal is to make the transition from pre-divorce to post-divorce as painless as possible for everyone involved.”
Mr. Lippman understands how hard divorce can be for all parties because his own parents divorced at a young age and that experience had a profound effect on him.
“That is why if I can make the process as painless as possible, especially in regards to keeping the children out of the middle of the arguments, then it is a win for my client and especially for their children,” he said.
Mr. Lippman gained a familiarity with the courtroom early in his life through his experience as president of the Moot Court Team as an undergraduate. In law school, he volunteered and worked at numerous internships, externships, and legal teaching assistant positions and completed more than 130 hours of legal volunteer work.
His experience observing a wide variety of legal fields and areas of law has given him a sense of comfort with all types of legal settings.
Additonally, his experience as a property law attorney has given him a familiarity with real property, personal property, trusts, mortgage, and refinancing loan documents that can be applied and carried over to divorce situations, especially in regard to the equitable distribution of property.
“Being the energetic type that I am, I am always dedicated to achieving the goals and expectations that each and every client may have,” Mr. Lippman said. “I am very responsive in all of my communications and building trust and rapport early on in the attorney-client relationship bond that we attain from the initial meeting is of utmost importance.”
