Mount Laurel divorce attorney Michael B. Prasad previously worked in both juvenile detention and for a behavioral health and acute care hospital. There, he was drawn to helping people at their most vulnerable.
“In the practice of family law, we are necessarily meeting people at what is often the most critical and vulnerable moment in their lives,” Mr. Prasad said. “Our clients count on us not only to be zealous advocates, but also trusted advisors and counselors as we work diligently to secure the best possible outcome for them under the circumstances.”
The divorce process, which can extend over the course of several months to years, can be transformative for clients as we work to put them in a position where they are able to move forward with their lives.”
Mr. Prasad enjoys guiding clients through what may very well be the most difficult moment in their lives so that they are able to move forward. That is what draws him to the practice of family law.
He is both empathetic and pragmatic, which are not mutually exclusive from each other when it comes to practicing family law.
“It’s cliché, but I genuinely care about my clients and I am acutely tuned into the fact that they are a real person dealing with, oftentimes, a very real crises; in those moments they rely on their attorney as a trusted advisor who is able to convey a realistic assessment of their case while connoting a level of genuine sincerity. It’s not an easy needle to thread, but it’s why clients have historically trusted me.”
At the beginning of the divorce process, Mr. Prasad talks with his clients about the range of possible outcomes, identifies what is most important to the client, and then zealously advocates for the best possible result within that range of possibilities.
“Throughout the process, we are going to have honest conversations about what lies ahead, what they can expect, and how we best effectuate our desired outcome,” he said. “I want my clients to know that they can trust me and that I will always be available and responsive to them.”
