A Better Approach To Family Law

When you are facing divorce or other family law problems, you need someone you can turn to who understands what you are going through and has the knowledge and strength required to help.

Brinkman & Associates has the qualities you are seeking. Our firm is dedicated exclusively to family law. We are compassionate with clients and passionate about resolving their legal problems. People come to us because they can tell we care and are enthusiastic about helping them.

I really appreciate the way Mrs. Brinkman handles difficult situations and difficult people. She represents me with confidence, yet always makes sure that I know what is going on and that I fully understand my options. Her paralegal also answered my questions promptly and professionally; and have helped me through some tough times.

Karen Brinkman is brilliant in court. I obtained full custody of my daughter and am extremely grateful. They made my family, my witnesses, the other professionals, and myself very comfortable by constantly educating us and keeping us informed of the law and the legal procedures. They deserve a lot of credit for their careful wording of motions and entries and their ability to take charge of out-of-control situations.

Karen and Associates went into action on behalf of my son and granddaughter. Their caring attitudes come through in everything they say and do. I am sure that I will be looking to Brinkman & Associates for legal advice and for common sense answers whenever I have a family law question in the future.

Kindhearted, Efficient Guidance

We treat clients with respect. That means we will return your phone calls and emails promptly and keep you up to date on important developments in your case. We listen to your concerns and goals, and we take the time to educate you about the law and the steps in the legal process.

Our founding attorney, Karen Riestenberg Brinkman, is known for the care she takes with every case and for the results she achieves for our firm’s clients. Preparation is one of the keys to our success. We never go into a hearing without meeting with you ahead of time and preparing you for all possibilities. We also would not allow you to go into a mediation, counseling session, or settlement meeting without thoroughly informing you of all possibilities. We explore options, develop action plans and follow through with your agenda.
