Dealing with Family Law issues can be a time of great stress and uncertainty. Family law attorney Landon will listen to you, explain the law to you, and discuss options to give you peace of mind for you and your family, in a sensitive and supportive manner.

With over forty years’ experience in Family Law, Landon will meet directly with you and will begin her conversation by asking “what’s going on…how can I help.”

Landon finds out what your legal needs might be but she also strives to understand what you wish to happen – what your goals are. She will take the time to explain the sometimes complex legal options available to you. She makes a point of speaking about both the short-term effects and long-term effects on you and your family. She knows that sometimes a client grabs for the quickest way instead of what might be the best way to settle an issue. She finds this especially true in the often emotionally charged atmosphere of Divorce and other Family Matters.

Landon makes sure that you understand the various documents you will be asked to sign. Landon and the Paralegals at the Law Office of Landon Dunn have decades of experience with Family Law. They will use the correct forms required by the Courts and will properly fill them out to reflect your exact situation.
