Are you going through a hard divorce? A hard divorce is if your spouse has threatened to ruin you financially, take your kids away from you, and make your life a living nightmare. Thankfully the Palmer Law Group is here to protect you from that. When someone is faced with this horrible situation the Palmer Law Group is excellent in court and here to help.
Palmer Law Group often gets results that are better than are even legally possibly obtainable in court. Going to court if often more like using a chainsaw to cut through the middle of your life. No one feels good in court except the lawyers. Court is a great money for the lawyers, but it’s torture for the clients. Palmer Law Group focuses to avoid court and have success to avoid court. But they are certainly not afraid to go into battle if war is necessary.
If revenge is what you want, Palmer Law Group is not the right law firm for you. The firm has a strict no revenge policy. “We don’t want clients who want revenge,” Dana explains. “It’s about making you healthy and ending the fighting, not increasing it. We WILL fight to protect you, but we do not fight for the sake of fighting. Those type of tactics often lead to higher bills and don’t and rarely, if ever, accomplish better results.”
Family law is different from other areas of law. There isn’t a definite mark of a “win”. For example, in criminal law staying out of jail equals a win. Dana’s movement is to establish good health as that mark for family law. Dana’s mission in life is to change the way people approach the divorce process.
Unlike a lot of other law firms, the Palmer Law Group offers extensive transparency. Clients have live access to the status of their case. They can actually digitally watch documents being developed, review attorney notes, and see what they do. Reviews consistently reflect this and add comments like “honest” and “great communication.” “How quickly did we give them their life back? How happy are the clients? This is how we measure success.” Palmer Law Group endeavors to deliver the highest quality and most efficient service.
Consultations begin with an explanation that everything you say is confidential. Then, you will talk through a three-step process with your attorney. Step one discusses your situation and why you needed to speak with them. Step two discusses what Palmer Law Group can do to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be. “This process gives them a highly customized and efficient path where we find the best solution for them.”
Dana Palmer, the founder and CEO of Palmer Law Group, has crystalized his vision and is sharing it to benefit as many people as he can. “I am always looking for a better way to do things, then I’m compelled to share with others.” He noted that he is only one firm, thus limited on how many he can help. It’s been years in the making, but through Worthy Vision Company, he is teaching other lawyers around the country how to improve the lives of their clients too.
“You need to believe there is a better way. You need to believe that you should get your clients through the legal process in the healthiest way possible. You should be the type of person that would rather declare peace and negotiate the terms of the peace and get a healthy solution that to declare war and hope they settle by fear. I want to share this with as many attorneys as we possibly can.”
At Dana’s firm, their attorneys are farmer attorneys. Farmers grow, nurture, and multiply. By doing as good of a job as possible for their clients getting the healthiest results as quickly as they can. Palmer Law Group wants to get their cases solved quickly, for healthy results.
