Des Moines divorce attorney Marcy Lundberg chose family law for her career because of the opportunity it gives her to help children through one of life’s most difficult transitions.
“Children are usually the most impacted when their parents separate,” Ms. Lundberg said. “Even the most caring parents may unintentionally put their children in the middle of their relationship with the other parent. I wanted to help parents and children during what is the most difficult period of their lives by guiding clients to a resolution that leaves them feeling as whole as possible and best situated to help their children cope with the new life with separated parents.”
Ms. Lundberg is able to empathize with her clients, their children and, at times the other party.
“Using empathy, I can help my client to deal with their feelings about the separation and to understand their children’s, and yes, even the other party’s feelings,” she said. “If you understand why the other party is acting in a certain way, you can better control your reaction to their actions.”
Ms. Lunberg approaches the practice of law and the legal system with a results-oriented philosophy. She strives to get the best outcomes for clients. That could be through negotiations, mediation, or through a full trial.
“I focus on what outcome is desired by the parties and I work with my clients to formulate a strategy that will generate the best possible outcome for my clients and their children,” she said. “Every family is different. Every client’s situation is unique. I will take the time to get to know my clients and their needs, and we will work together to the end.”
