Madison divorce attorney Theodore Wegner has pursued a career in family law because he knows his work will impact his clients’ daily lives.
“Divorce and family separation has a major impact on every member of a family,” Mr. Wegner said. “I pride myself on being there for my clients and giving them a compassionate ear during one of the most difficult and stressful times of their lives.”
Mr. Wegner is an attentive listener. He considers being able to sit down and really listen to his clients to be a critical skill in family law.
“By listening I can really understand my client’s objectives and goals and what type of person they are,” he said. “As clients open up to me, I can get a feel for what their needs are and how I can best serve their interests.”
The most important thing to know when starting a family law case is that you must set reasonable expectations and take wins where you can get them.
“The rules and courts are often not going to provide ideal outcomes but finding an outcome that a client can live with is often the best outcome we can achieve,” Mr. Wegner said. “Anything above and beyond a livable solution is always an achievement.”
