Wilmington divorce attorney Stephanie Horton has always possessed a deep-rooted sense of fairness. When she first started practicing, she couldn’t help but notice obvious disparities in how men and women were treated by the courts in family law situations.
That disparity was made even more apparent when a close male family member went through a divorce or custody case. She noticed instances where, even when the father won primary custody of his children, the journey was clearly more costly and difficult than it would have been for a woman.
“This experience, combined with my own experiences in representing men in family law matters, touched deeply my sense of fairness and instilled in me a drive to provide my clients with the best representation possible in order to ensure that all parties were treated fairly, competently, and compassionately during an already challenging chapter of their lives,” Ms. Horton said.
Ms. Horton is compassionate toward each one of her clients. She works to understand their goals and concerns and works diligently to achieve the best resolution in all cases.
She understands the complexities of family law, and while she can’t promise an easy journey, she does everything she guides each of her clients through every step of the process.
“A family law case is a marathon and not a sprint,” Ms. Horton said. “There will be mountains to climb and valleys in which you will descend.
“Be prepared for the journey and highs and lows that will come with it, and know that the end of the legal case will be the beginning of yet another challenge: Finding a new normal.”
