Rochelle Cavanagh tells all of her clients that her role as an attorney during the divorce process is that of a navigator.
“I will give them the road map to get where they want to go,” said Ms. Cavanagh, “but the client is the driver and they have to determine where it is that they want to go.”
To the majority of people, the issues dealt with in family law are, without question, the most important aspects of their lives. Cases often deal with life savings, prized possessions, and the parents’ future roles in their children’s lives.
“I never take this responsibility lightly and I always feel privileged that clients trust me to see them through these difficult periods in their lives,” Ms. Cavanagh said. “I feel like it is truly important work, and that for me was, and continues to be, the draw to this area of law.”
